Maintainers Index
=================

.. warning::

   This document is out of date and replaced by another version in the
   developer's guide at http://docs.python.org/devguide/experts

This document has tables that list Python Modules, Tools, Platforms and
Interest Areas and names for each item that indicate a maintainer or an
expert in the field.  This list is intended to be used by issue submitters,
issue triage people, and other issue participants to find people to add to
the nosy list or to contact directly by email for help and decisions on
feature requests and bug fixes.  People on this list may be asked to render
final judgement on a feature or bug.  If no active maintainer is listed for
a given module, then questionable changes should go to python-dev, while
any other issues can and should be decided by any committer.

Unless a name is followed by a '*', you should never assign an issue to
that person, only make them nosy.  Names followed by a '*' may be assigned
issues involving the module or topic.

The Platform and Interest Area tables list broader fields in which various
people have expertise.  These people can also be contacted for help,
opinions, and decisions when issues involve their areas.

If a listed maintainer does not respond to requests for comment for an
extended period (three weeks or more), they should be marked as inactive
in this list by placing the word 'inactive' in parenthesis behind their
tracker id.  They are of course free to remove that inactive mark at
any time.

Committers should update these tables as their areas of expertise widen.
New topics may be added to the Interest Area table at will.

The existence of this list is not meant to indicate that these people
*must* be contacted for decisions; it is, rather, a resource to be used
by non-committers to find responsible parties, and by committers who do
not feel qualified to make a decision in a particular context.

See also `PEP 291`_ and `PEP 360`_ for information about certain modules
with special rules.
