The man page doesn't mention PYTHONFAULTHANDER in the list of environment variables (I haven't thoroughly checked that everyone else is there, either).  I would also suggest reordering the environment variables in alphabetical order.

I didn't know that Python has a manual page :-) (Misc/

Note: I added these 3 environment variables ;-)

Hi, I have alphabetized and added the missing Environment Variables according to Section 1.2 . I also added the missing environment variables from that documentation section.

Should Section 1.2 also be alphabetized? I noticed it wasn't.

This is my first contribution to python (I also just filled out the contributor forms) any comments and criticism is appreciated.

Can you please de-alphabetize the list to make patch review a little bit easier? Thanks!

Undid alphabetization and added additional missing environment variables including debug mode variables.

Thanks for the patch, Joshua. I did a quick review and it looks good to me. I will review and test it more carefully later today.

Hi Joshua,
Seems like your latest patch doesn't apply cleanly to the default branch.
Can you rebase and upload a new patch?

msg278395 - (view) Author: Joshua Jay Herman (zitterbewegung) * Date: 2016-10-10 00:33
Hi I performed the rebase on the default branch.
msg278425 - (view) Author: Joshua Jay Herman (zitterbewegung) * Date: 2016-10-10 16:00
Thanks for reviewing Mariatta I have made a new patch that has those typos corrected.

Thanks for the updated patch, Joshua. I will review and commit it this week.

PYTHONUSERBASE is also missing.

Thanks for pointing out that wasn't in the latest patch this has been corrected.

Thanks for the patch and sorry for my late response. I did some tweaks and am planning to commit the tweaked version of your patch this week.

> I'm not sure whats happening.

Hum, nothing is happening. In december, Berker wrote "Thanks for the updated patch, Joshua. I will review and commit it this week." and then it seems like he found issues, since he proposed a new patch. And then, nothing new happened. Nobody reviewed latest Berker's patch and Berker maybe forgot to push it.

Can someone pick a recent patch and convert it to a GitHub PR? Berker, the author of the most recent patch, maybe?
msg309692 - (view) Author: Anant Prakash (APwhitehat) * Date: 2018-01-09 09:53
I am going to take the patch, edit and make a github PR for this.

Any updates on this issue are welcome. Thank you

Ignore my previous comment.
