Patch to fix crashes with python debug

Hi,

  I have a patch proposal to fix problems in mx.DateTime that causes crashes in the debug version of Python (I'm testing on Python 2.7). Specifically, the problem happens when there is an error raised from one of the "constructors".  Where can I send it?  I didn't find any official repository or issue tracking system.  Is this list a good place?


  Thanks.

ANNOUNCING

                 eGenix PyRun - One file Python Runtime

                            Version 2.0.1

         An easy-to-use single file relocatable Python run-time -
           available for Linux, Mac OS X and Unix platforms,
              with support for Python 2.6, 2.7 and now
                      **also for Python 3.4**.

This announcement is also available on our web-site for online reading:
http://www.egenix.com/company/news/eGenix-PyRun-2.0.1-GA.html

________________________________________________________________________

INTRODUCTION

eGenix PyRun is our open source, one file, no installation version of
Python, making the distribution of a Python interpreter to run based
scripts and applications to Unix based systems as simple as copying a
single file.

eGenix PyRun's executable only needs 11MB for Python 2 and 13MB for
Python 3, but still supports most Python application and scripts - and
it can be compressed to just 3-4MB using upx, if needed.

Compared to a regular Python installation of typically 100MB on disk,
eGenix PyRun is ideal for applications and scripts that need to be
distributed to several target machines, client installations or
customers.

It makes "installing" Python on a Unix based system as simple as
copying a single file.

eGenix has been using the product internally in the mxODBC Connect
Server since 2008 with great success and decided to make it available
as a stand-alone open-source product.

We provide both the source archive to build your own eGenix PyRun, as
well as pre-compiled binaries for Linux, FreeBSD and Mac OS X, as 32-
and 64-bit versions. The binaries can be downloaded manually, or you
can let our automatic install script install-pyrun take care of the
installation: ./install-pyrun dir and you're done.

Please see the product page for more details:

    http://www.egenix.com/products/python/PyRun/

________________________________________________________________________

NEWS

This is a patch level release of eGenix PyRun 2.0. The major new
feature in 2.0 is the added Python 3.4 support.

New Features
------------

 * Upgraded eGenix PyRun to work with and use Python 2.7.8 per default.

Enhancements / Changes
----------------------

 * Fixed a bug in the license printer to show the correct license URL.

install-pyrun Quick Install Enhancements
---------------------------------------------

eGenix PyRun includes a shell script called install-pyrun, which
greatly simplifies installation of PyRun. It works much like the
virtualenv shell script used for creating new virtual environments
(except that there's nothing virtual about PyRun environments).

    https://downloads.egenix.com/python/install-pyrun

With the script, an eGenix PyRun installation is as simple as running:

    ./install-pyrun targetdir

This will automatically detect the platform, download and install the
right pyrun version into targetdir.

We have updated this script since the last release:

 * Updated install-pyrun to default to eGenix PyRun 2.0.1 and its
   feature set.

For a complete list of changes, please see the eGenix PyRun Changelog:

    http://www.egenix.com/products/python/PyRun/changelog.html

Please see the eGenix PyRun 2.0.0 announcement for more details about
eGenix PyRun 2.0:

Web Installers for mx Base and mxODBC on PyPI

Dear Users,

with the recent releases of egenix-mx-base and egenix-mxodbc we
have uploaded a web installer to PyPI instead of just having
PyPI reference our download server and letting the Python installers
scrape the URLs for links.

The new web installer will determine the system it is running on
and automatically download the right package from our servers.
This has been tested by us on all officially supported platforms
(Linux, Windows, Mac OS X and FreeBSD) with easy_install, pip and
zc.buildout:

Here's a typical output from easy_install where you can see the web
installer working:

Finished processing dependencies for egenix-mxodbc

With the web installer, the installation experience should be a much better
one. You can of course also simply download the right packages from our
website product pages directly. The web installer just takes care of
choosing and downloading the right package for you. It also makes sure
that you are getting authentic packages by verifying the downloads
against check sums.

Since the technology is still very new, please let us know if you
run into problems.

PS: The web installer code is included in mxSetup.py which is part
of our open source egenix-mx-base package. If this turns out to be
a success, we will likely publish this as documented eGenix open
source product, so that you can use it in your packages as well.

Many thanks,

                         Version 0.13.4.1.0.1.9

             An easy-to-install and easy-to-use distribution
             of the pyOpenSSL Python interface for OpenSSL -
            available for Windows, Mac OS X and Unix platforms

This announcement is also available on our web-site for online reading:
http://www.egenix.com/company/news/eGenix-pyOpenSSL-Distribution-0.13.4.1.0.1.9.html

________________________________________________________________________
INTRODUCTION

The eGenix.com pyOpenSSL Distribution includes everything you need to
get started with SSL in Python.

It comes with an easy-to-use installer that includes the most recent
OpenSSL library versions in pre-compiled form, making your application
independent of OS provided OpenSSL libraries:

    http://www.egenix.com/products/python/pyOpenSSL/

pyOpenSSL is an open-source Python add-on that allows writing SSL/TLS-
aware network applications as well as certificate management tools:

    https://launchpad.net/pyopenssl/

OpenSSL is an open-source implementation of the SSL/TLS protocol:

    http://www.openssl.org/

________________________________________________________________________
NEWS

This new release of the eGenix.com pyOpenSSL Distribution updates the
included OpenSSL version to the latest OpenSSL 1.0.1h version and adds
a few more context options:

New in OpenSSL
--------------

 * Updated included OpenSSL libraries from OpenSSL 1.0.1h to 1.0.1i.
   See https://www.openssl.org/news/secadv_20140806.txt for a complete
   list of changes. Most fixes apply to the OpenSSL DTLS implementation,
   which pyOpenSSL currently does not support. The following fix is
   relevant for pyOpenSSL applications:

   - CVE-2014-3511: A flaw in the OpenSSL TLS server code allows a
     man-in-the-middle attacker to force a downgrade to TLS 1.0.

New in pyOpenSSL
----------------

 * Compiled pyOpenSSL with OPENSSL_LOAD_CONF to have the OpenSSL
   libs automatically load the openssl.cnf configuration file. This
   allows easy configuration of additional OpenSSL parameters and
   defaults, locations of certificate files, hardware engines, etc.
   without having to change the application code. Please see the
   documentation for details.

 * Updated the included CA root certificate bundles to Mozilla's
   2014-07-15 update.

pyOpenSSL / OpenSSL Binaries Included
-------------------------------------

In addition to providing sources, we make binaries available that
include both pyOpenSSL and the necessary OpenSSL libraries for all
supported platforms: Windows x86 and x64, Linux x86 and x64, Mac OS X
PPC, x86 and x64.

We've also added egg-file distribution versions of our eGenix.com
pyOpenSSL Distribution for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X to the
available download options. These make setups using e.g. zc.buildout
and other egg-file based installers a lot easier.

UPGRADING

Before installing this version of pyOpenSSL, please make sure that
you uninstall any previously installed pyOpenSSL version. Otherwise,
you could end up not using the included OpenSSL libs.

    - easy_install egenix-mx-base via PyPI
    - pip install egenix-mx-base via PyPI
    - egenix-mx-base egg reference in zc.buildout via PyPI
    - running "python setup.py install" in the unzipped web installer
      archive directory

    The web installer will automatically detect the platform and
    choose the right binary download package for you. All downloads
    are verified before installation.

Fixes
-----

 * mxDateTime: Protected delta.strftime() against segfaults on
   Windows, which only allows day values <= 31 and segfaults for
   higher values. Thanks to Frank Boje for reporting this problem.

 * mxTextTools: Fixed a double decref in the tagging engine that
   surfaced when using custom tag objects and appending the results to
   them. Thanks to Richard Moseley for the report.

Compatibility Enhancements
--------------------------

 * Prepared eGenix mx Base for two digit Python patch level numbers
   such as Python 2.7.10

eGenix mx Base Distribution 3.2.0 was release on 2012-08-28. Please

NEWS

The 3.3.1 release of our mxODBC is a patch level release of our
popular Python ODBC Interface for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and
FreeBSD. It includes these enhancements and fixes:

Installation Enhancements
-------------------------

 * Added web installer package to the Python Package Index (PyPI)
   which simplifies installation.

   In addition to the usual ways of installing mxODBC, we have
   uploaded a web installer to PyPI, so that it is now also possible
   to use one of these installation methods on all supported platforms
   (Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X):

   - easy_install egenix-mxodbc via PyPI
   - pip install egenix-mxodbc via PyPI
   - egg reference in zc.buildout via PyPI
   - running "python setup.py install" in the unzipped web installer
     archive directory

   The web installer will automatically detect the platform and choose
   the right binary download package for you. All downloads are
   verified before installation.

Driver Compatibility
--------------------

SQL Server

 * Fixed a problem with custom errorhandlers set at connection time,
   which could result in warnings not being ignored during
   connect. SQL Server raises such warnings during connect, so this
   fix will restore mxODBC 3.2 behavior for SQL Server.

 * Documented a solution for a problem with the SQL Server 2012 parser
   complaining about not being able to deduce types of some operations
   using more than one bound variable, e.g. "col1 >= ? + ?".

Teradata

 * Improved the Teradata ODBC driver setup instructions to address
   some common gotchas when setting up mxODBC to work with these
   drivers.

 * Fixed a problem with Teradata and the test suite which resulted in
   an error "[Teradata][ODBC Teradata Driver] Beyond
   SQL_ACTIVE_STATEMENTS limit". The driver needs an explicit call to
   cursor.flush() to close any open result sets before running commits
   or rollbacks.

Misc
----

 * Fixed a problem in cursor.getcolattributes() that caused errors to
   be ignored.

 * Added better protection against ODBC driver bugs in getenvattr().

 * Fixed an attribute error when using the NamespaceRowFactory
   function.

 * Fixed a deprecation warning when using the NamespaceRowFactory
   function.

 * Prepared mxODBC for two digit Python patch level numbers,
   ie. 2.7.10.

 * Fixed prebuilt archives to also work correctly with easy_install.

 * Added dependency on egenix-mx-base, so that easy_install and pip
   automatically install the mx Base package as well.

For the full set of changes please check the mxODBC change log:

    http://www.egenix.com/products/python/mxODBC/changelog.html

EGENIX TALKS AT EUROPYTHON

At this year's EuroPython, Marc-André Lemburg, CEO of eGenix, will be
giving a talk providing some insights into our experience with
large-scale database applications written in Python.

Advanced Database Programming with Python
-----------------------------------------

    Getting the best out of your database.

    The Python DB-API 2.0 (http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0249/)
    provides a direct interface to many popular database backends. It
    makes interaction with relational database very straight forward
    and allows tapping into the full set of features these databases
    provide.

    The talk will cover advanced database topics which are relevant in
    production environments such as locks, distributed transactions
    and transaction isolation.

    Friday, 11:30 CEST, Room C01
