Here are some bug reports and feature requests I've reported to Python-related software


SMTPlib

Python Documentation

Searching the Python documentation does not work in Chrome if you have a local copy of the HTML documentation installed.

This was reported in at least thrice to the Spinx project (which is the code that is generating the Python documentation), in issues #505, #723 and #782. #723 pointed to the source of the problem: In Webkit-based browsers same-origin-policy restriction applies to local files.

Since Spinx 0.x worked fine (the problem only occurs 1.0, 1.2 and 1.2), I've found a work-around based on the Sphinx 0.x code. This was discussed in pull request #58. For speed, we settled on code that first use the existing method, and if that fails, revert to the Sphinx 0.x method of doing things. The change was [ https://bitbucket.org/birkenfeld/sphinx/commits/81e4a8f0cb7f committed] and is available in Sphinx 1.3 and up.
