[$] What should be in the Python standard library?

Post Syndicated from jake original https://lwn.net/Articles/776239/rss

Python has always touted itself as a “batteries included” language; its
standard library contains lots of useful modules, often more than enough to
solve many types of problems quickly. From time to time, though, some have
started to rethink that philosophy, to reduce or restructure the standard
library, for a variety of reasons. A discussion
at the end of November on the python-dev mailing list revived that debate
to some
extent.
