I suspected that this is related to the observed test failure on eno/skynet (#15440) but it is actually not. But its better than what we have so we should ship it.

Haven't been active in sage for a bit. I needed to back off a little bit. I have to agree that looks much nicer and you added a nice looking doctest.

The patch to use ecl_set_option looks good, but the doctest patch looks very wrong : it doesn't check that ECL-in-sage doesn't use SIGCHLD, but rather that SIGCHLD isn't used at all!

I don't understand what you are trying to say. It tests both that neither Sage nor ECL set a SIGCHLD handler, i.e. that it remains NULL.

Is this clearer?

  • Status changed from needs_review to positive_review

Looks fine to me. Note I did not run the testsuite, but let's leave that to the patchbot. And hopefully we'll also update ECL at some point, the sage-on-gentoo folk did that though it was not painless.
