Christian Heimes <lists@cheimes.de> added the comment:
> Victor, the PR for this BPO has introduced XML_POOR_ENTROPY. Neither the commit message nor the issue explains why. Which platform failed to compile without XML_POOR_ENTROPY?

And, maybe:

"Oh, compilation fails on Travis CI at:"
https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/3106#issuecomment-323118722

And my rationale is (extract of setup.py):


                # bpo-30947: Python uses best available entropy sources to
                # call XML_SetHashSalt(), expat entropy sources are not needed
                ('XML_POOR_ENTROPY', '1'),

But I'm wrong if I understood what you told me last week.
