Hi all,

So now that both cpython and jython are using the same source repository, it's a good time to start pushing changes upstream so that we don't have to fork their modules.

I'm thinking of situations like the ftplib.py module, which I had to fork (i.e. copy into our repo), just to make this one simple change

http://hg.python.org/jython/rev/c52aac19c12e

It would be obviously be better for us to have that change made in the original, so that we can eliminate our forked copy.

So what's the best way to go about this?

1. Make the change directly in the cpython repo, i.e. "just do it"?

2. Consult with some of the maintainers of the module, or get them to do it?

3. File a bug, attach a patch, etc?

4. Some other way?

Alan.
