Changelog for Python 3.2 contains this paragraph:
"- Issue #7962: The Demo directory is gone.  Most of the old and unmaintained demos have been removed, others integrated in documentation or a new Tools/demo subdirectory."

However, there is no "demo" inside of Tools directory in fresh install of Python 3.2 on Windows.

I thought I posted this on another issue, but cannot find it.

My installed 3.2 Tools directory only has i8n, pynche, and scripts directories.
The 3.2 repository has 12 other directories in Tools that are missing from the installation.

These directories aren't missing - they are simply not included. Each such inclusion should be preceded by an explicit request (preferably with some rationale).

Including the demo directory is fine with me.

Explicit request for inclusion? What kind of bureaucracy are you up to?

Do you have a full list of missing or not included directories for various distributions? I'm sure many are curious to review them.

This probably means: bug reports.

The Tools directory may or may not be included in UNIX tarballs, Mac OS X installers or Windows installers.  It is not documented anywhere that they should be, so I think this report is invalid.  The primary users of Tools are developers and contributors, not Python users in general; the part of Tools/demo that survived the 3.2 Demo Purge is not very useful, and could be moved to the docs or the wiki IMHO.

msg139889 states "so I think this report is invalid" so I suggest we close this.
