Many bugs in the tracker are likely no longer valid, especially if they are old and pure Python in nature. Current focus in 2.5 development is to reduce the number of failing units tests (see  http://freya.cs.uiuc.edu:8009/waterfall). Often these tests are already systematically testing for these bugs; if not, we should come up with additional tests that do just that. This helps ensure that we are permanently closing out these bugs without regression.

I would encourage anyone interested in helping in this process to identify in the tracker bugs we can close, and submitting unit test patches that demonstrate their closing where appropriate (and not covered by existing testing).

It should be clear that 2.5 alpha is definitely not free of known bugs :), it was just getting to the point where we thought that it was reasonably useful for people to try out, especially with respect to interesting frameworks like Django and Pylons.

hi all..
i saw some bugs on the jython tracker!
after jython2.5a is released, still those bugs are valid?
is there anyone who is looking after whether the new updates to jython2.5a will close those bugs!
it will be good if we close those bugs so that it will be easy for the community to pickup and look after those bugs.
thanks alot.
