Subject Re: Update to python-2.17
Date Sat, 04 Jan 2020 10:16:46 GMT
Hi Pedro,

Thanks!

Unfortunately the build process just stops at some point (on Windows),
no error codes I could give you.

According to https://www.python.org/downloads/release/python-2717/ this
is the "penultimate" release, so maybe there will be a final 2.7.18?

Regards,

   Matthias
