Some additional information form WhatsNew Python 3

The sys.maxint constant was removed, since there is no longer a limit to the value of integers. However, sys.maxsize can be used as an integer larger than any practical list or string index. It conforms to the implementation’s “natural” integer size and is typically the same as sys.maxint in previous releases on the same platform (assuming the same build options).

and from the Python 3 docmentation


An integer giving the maximum value a variable of type Py_ssize_t can take. It’s usually 2**31 - 1 on a 32-bit platform and 2**63 - 1 on a 64-bit platform.

The patch looks good.

I did

git merge u/chapoton/15991 u/wluebbe/ticket/15986 u/wluebbe/ticket/15987

on top of u/wluebbe/ticket/15992 (which is rebased on 6.2.beta5):

./sage -t -p --all --long --logfile=logs/ptestlong-alle4.log
All tests passed!
