python 2.1 is available as maintenance/bugfix release 2.1.3.
current version in ports is 2.1.2.
the zope port and other software depending on a working garbage
collector in python 2.1 crashes on 2.1.2. version 2.1.3 addresses
this and several more issues.
patch to /usr/ports tree as of april 9, 2002, attached.
these were the dependencies i fouind at first glance. there might be more.
this is my first send-pr generated report. feel free to kick my butt if
something is wrong ;-)
How-To-Repeat: run zope-2.5.0 port with python-2.1.2 on a little to medium loaded server
severity should be escalated to "serious" because 2.1.2 python users
might see severe problems (including data loss and the like) in memory
intensive python apps that stress the garbage collector. this not only
covers zope but also several application frameworks out there and nearly
everything that runs a daemon.
