Subject [jira] Created: (MODPYTHON-205) Python version mismatch check and patch level revisions.
Date Wed, 15 Nov 2006 02:56:37 GMT
Python version mismatch check and patch level revisions.
--------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: MODPYTHON-205
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MODPYTHON-205
             Project: mod_python
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: core
    Affects Versions: 3.2.10, 3.3
            Reporter: Graham Dumpleton
            Priority: Minor


When mod_python starts up, it performs a check to confirm whether the version of Python it
finds at runtime is the same version as was used to compile mod_python originally. It does
this by comparing the value of PY_VERSION defined when mod_python is compiled against the
runtime derived version from Py_GetVersion().

Because this is a complete version string, it incorporates the patch level revision as well
as the major and minor versions. This means mod_python will issue a warning if Python has
been updated, but only by a patch revision. Technically, the ABI for patch level revisions
of Python should be compatible and a warning about a version mismatch should be needed in
this situation.

Thus, the check should perhaps be changed to only look at major/minor version differences
and not patch level revisions.

As an example of this issue, below is bug report from debian bugs list.
