The extension module porting guide at https://docs.python.org/dev/howto/cporting.html should be updated with Linux distro porting experience.

Barry's notes: https://wiki.python.org/moin/PortingToPy3k/BilingualQuickRef#Python_extension_modules

Petr's compatibility helper tools: https://py3c.readthedocs.org

Following the large rewrite in https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/9317 to point to other guides (including py3c) instead of providing a guide, should we

a) add a pointer to Barry's notes as well
b) migrate this bug to request enhancements to py3c docs or http://python3porting.com/cextensions.html
c) something else?

py3c has an open issue to check that Barry's notes on C extensions are included: https://github.com/encukou/py3c/issues/1
However, C extensions are only a small part of the wiki page.
