The various importlib.util decorators involved with __loader__ should reset the attribute when it is set to None, just like for __package__.

The patch is attached. Is it correct?

Yep, the patch looks right, Gökcen! If you want to update the tests and docs that would be great, but obviously don't feel obliged to.

Of course. I have also commented on issue#17116 but I couldn't find the pyexpat test you mentioned. I would like to fix #17116 and #17115

Issue #17116 will be fixed by issue #17715 if you decide to tackle it. That bug will require C-level changes to the module type; just FYI.

Please consider a PSF contributor form, Gökcen, if you plan to continue to submit code (your importlib.util fixes are simple enough to not require anything yet, but tests added to that plus anything you do for issue #17115 will require the form in order for me to commit your code). Instructions can be found at .

And obviously thanks for taking a look at all of this!

I have already given my form to akheron during a Python sprint, I think he will submit it to PSF within a few days.
