Thanks for asking!

Last December I was thinking about this - and what would be the best way to proceed.

The reply I liked best suggested working on this - outside of CPython "bugfixes" - perhaps later moving bits into the core.

So, motivated by your question I opened an area in github -

a) I have done a quick re-write of the current README.AIX - with stress on re-write.

b) I have several years experience with packaging Python for AIX (for which I use the IBM compiler) and also manage a Python-buildbot that uses gcc. What I don't want to do is just pour forth lots of notes re: things I have discovered and learned.

c) I would appreciate hearing your experiences re: using Python on AIX. Report issues via pythonAIXDOC or my packaging forums ( and I will reply, study, etc.. as much as I have time to. The experiences (especially frustrations when it works this way (...) on platform Y, but not (the same, or at all) on AIX.

Hope this helps!
