Thanks for yet another bug report, we now have it on codeplex as:


As Shri already said earlier, we are focusing most of our energy on the 2.0 development, but will address important blocking issues that are found in IronPython 1.1. We have moved all issues tracked on CodePlex over to target the 2.0 release, however if we did accidentally moved a serious blocking issue, please let us know so that we can track the important bugs that need to be fixed in the 1.1 release.

Subject: [IronPython] __doc__ on None

Hello all,

More fun with None:

CPython 2.4.4:
 >>> print None.__doc__

IP 1.1:
 >>> print None.__doc__
T.__new__(S, ...) -> a new object with type S, a subtype of T

This is again confusing our auto-documentation tool. :-)

By the way - can any of 'the team' answer the question as to whether the
1.1 branch is still being developed? (Bugfixes being backported?)
