To prevent lesser-used OSs from being poorly serviced by Python we do not accept patches to add support for them. We suggest alternative OSs keep their own set of patches external to Python for ease of updating. We have mirrors on both bitbucket and github if you would like to maintain your patches on either site based off those mirrors.

Is there any possibility this could be reconsidered, it's 2015 and Bitrig is still a thing under active development and the proposed patch set essentially adds Bitrig to the if statements where OpenBSD is already stated. This would of benefit for people working on 3rd party packaging systems who would also have to carry this patch set otherwise.

The vast majority of the patch is adding || Defined('bitrig') after Defined('openbsd').  I don't know if that is an argument for or against, but on its face, its just working around an issue of an openbsd fork not identifying as openbsd.

As discussed with Alex on IRC "if that's the case then OpenBSD should identify as NetBSD & DragonFlyBSD should identify as FreeBSD" ??

The official requirements for OS support is outlined in which requires a core dev to step forward to maintain bitrig support as well as a buildbot running bitrig. Unfortunately neither has happened yet for Bitrig.
