Just a generic questions about the "What is included in the kit" list...
Are there any differences between the Alpha and the IA64 kit?
I ask since I could not find "python-docx" in the current Alpha kit.
I have not looked in the Itanium kit myself (have no Itanium box)...

Regards,
Jan-Erik.

The AXP and IA64 kit include the same modules.
The only difference is that the I164 version is build against OpenVMS 8.3 and the AXP version against OpenVMS 7.3-2. So a few VMS modules/CRTL haven't exactly the same functions.

> and the AXP version against OpenVMS 7.3-2.

Is this on purpose?
Or becuse lack of V 8.x Alpha build environment?

Yes, I don't have enough resource (especially time...) to maintains 2 different kits, one for 7.3-2 and another for 8.4. Same of IA64 with 8.3 versus 8.4.

Time to time I think to switch to 8.4 as the minimum version supported, both for AXP and IA64.

I don't know if there are people running Python on old VMS version (AXP 7.3-2, IA64 8.3).

Question open...
