I have #Python 3.7 built on the #VAX finally after some manipulation of their tests.
The Python core devs, however, won't fix a bug that would make this simple and easy. The unwillingness of the #Python core dev community to support platforms outside Win/Mac/Linux (or non-gcc/clang/vcc compilers) is one reason I want nothing to do with core Python contributions any longer.
@jba I don't think it's unreasonable that they only want to support IEEE 754 hardware. I suspect that there are a lot more bugs that would show up from code assuming IEEE 754. Perl's been running on such platforms since the early days IIRC.
