Last week our work was a little hanged as we were shifting to the college hostel. As mentioned in the previous posts we were working in two groups. Ranjith, Deepak and Vijin were trying to implement the restricted python and by the time me and Vyshakh managed to fix all the errors and failures in python2.5.

Meanwhile we tried to eliminate the deprecation warnings. We changed the string exceptions to class based exceptions in the module Zope2 and made the module free from the errors,failures and deprecation warnings. And thus all the errors and failures are fixed in python2.5. Now we are trying to eliminate other deprecation warnings.

The checkin will be done after discussing with our mentor.

We hope to completely eliminate the deprecation warnings and implement the restricted python as soon as possible.

PS:- Any helps regarding the implementation of restricted python are always welcome.

Last week Ranjith was trying to implement restricted python. He was going through documents of restricted python and was trying to get help from the mailing list. He had a discussion with Martijn Fassen and now he is trying to patch the existing restricted python implementation by closing all the possible holes created by the changes by python2.5.

Me and Deepak were trying to fix the errors and failures in python2.6. We fixed some syntax errors which was due to the new keywords in python2.6. Last few days we were trying to fix the import errors and we got considerable help from the mailing list. We managed to fix import error of the module ImplPython and now going on through other errors.

Vijin and Vyshakh were dealing with the deprecation warnings in python2.5 and they have asked for help in mailing list. As the deprecation warnings in python2.5 and the errors in python2.6 are interrelated we decided to join the group, so that we can finish both in parallel.

By next week we hope to make more checkins to the zope trunk after fixing the errors in python2.6 and removing the deprecation warnings in python2.5. After that we all will join Ranjith in implementing restricted python.

More updates soon.
