We use VS2015 to build Python(branch 3.6)on Windows. It failed with error "importlib.h, importlib_external.h updated. You will need to rebuild pythoncore to see the changes". This error is reported from Python 3.6 branch revision 3ab24bd. The detailed error log file is attached. Could you please help to take a look? Thank you so much!

Here is repro steps:
1. git clone -b "3.6" -c core.autocrlf=true D:\Python3\src
2. checkout the revision to 3ab24bd.
3. build -e -r -v

Hi Karen,

You may have already noticed that this has been fixed since you reported it; sorry it's taken so long for anybody to reply!  The issue was that importlib.h and importlib_external.h (generated files) were not checked in when their source files were changed, as is our convention for those files.  We have since enabled pre-merge CI to check this sort of thing.
