Bot for backporting CPython Pull Requests.

miss-islington requires Python 3.6. Python 3.7 is not yet supported.

Backporting a PR on CPython

Prior to merging a PR, a Python core developer should apply the needs backport to X.Y label to the pull request. Once the pull request has been merged, @miss-islington will prepare the backport PR.

If @miss-islington encountered any issue while backporting, it will leave a comment about it, and the PR will be assigned to the core developer who merged the PR. The PR then needs to be backported manually.

Merging the Backport PR

If a Python core developer approved the backport PR made by miss-islington, it will be automatically merged once all the CI checks passed.

Aside: where does the name come from?

According to Wikipedia, Miss Islington is the name of the witch in the Monty Python and the Holy Grail sketch.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
