Switch branches/tags

Name already in use

A tag already exists with the provided branch name. Many Git commands accept both tag and branch names, so creating this branch may cause unexpected behavior. Are you sure you want to create this branch?

A faster CPython

Five times faster

We want to speed up CPython by a factor of 5 over the next four releases.

See the plan for how this can be done.

Paying for it

Making CPython faster by this amount will require funding. Relying on the goodwill and spare time of the core developers is not sufficient.

See funding for my thoughts on how the money can be found.
