This bug is intended to contain all the patches for fixing PEP8 errors in stdlib.
I am thinking of using a tool such as autopep8 to help fix the errors.

Sorry, but we don't fix style issue unless we are already working on that code for some other reasons.

Why? This may be low priority.
msg179925 - (view) Author: Ezio Melotti (ezio.melotti) * (Python committer) Date: 2013-01-14 09:09
Several reasons, e.g.:
 * there's the risk of introducing new bugs;
 * it makes merging more difficult;
 * it takes time to produce and review the patches;
 * it makes hg annotate harder to use;

FWIW, I concur with Ezio's reasons for rejecting this.

It's a valid bug report however difficult or low priority it is.

It is valid, but it is not *useful* to have it in the bug tracker as an open bug.  All developers are aware that when they touch code for some other reason, they can fix PEP8 errors at the same time.  Having an open bug report for it would just clutter the ticket system for no practical purpose.
