The devguide needs to be updated with new instructions. It seems that the script in issue11561 has been integrated into's own repo, which means we now have a way to get much more complete coverage of the stdlib. But it also means that users need to build the tracer extension in That might require a little extra hand-holding as compiling from a checkout can mean needing to unset CPPFLAGS in order to not pick up the system Python's header files.
