I'm not suggesting there isn't, this is not a sea lion post, just curious about your reasons.

two reasons i think xinetd is the standard now, most distributions, uses xinetd , and also i use openrc on other slackware installation, and openrc does not have module for inetd, it has just a module for xinetd

Hi Didier, isnt python3 required for Orca ?
Anyway tomorrow or after tomorrow the gnome team should announce the 3.26 release and the tarballas will still be those, so they are safe to upgrade from the
code stability point of view, now I have no idea if this would impact anything else in Slackware.

Ye it is. We'll ship it, as well as other dependencies, mostly speech-dispatcher.

So far I didn't see anything nasty testing with these packages @ 2.24 (already shipped in Slackware-current too).

Build python with UCS-4

Enable UCS-4 in python using build flag: --enable-unicode=ucs4

I'm not sure if it's already been done, but please build python with UCS-4. At least Gajim doesn't work fully without it. All other major distros use it by default for a while now.

I asked about this when 14.2 was near RC stage. Alas, it was too late as it requires all python dependants to be rebuilt and re-tested.

Reference to my thread at the time:

It's already built like that in current since an year
Code:
Thu Sep  8 21:35:02 UTC 2016
[...]
d/python-2.7.12-x86_64-1.txz:  Upgraded.
  Compiled using --enable-unicode=ucs4.
  The upstream default for Python Unicode is ucs2, but ucs4 is more widely
  used and recommended now.  Any Python scripts or binaries that use UCS-2
  will need to be recompiled.  These can be identified with the following
  grep command:  grep -r -l PyUnicodeUCS2 /usr 2> /dev/null

Oops, just checked that old thread, and on the last post it's stated it was already commited to current. That's good news.

Well spotted, I didn't think to check the current Changelog. I didn't think it would be mentioned there.
