 Description modified (diff)
Wait, I do know how to fix that last failure.
comment:5 Changed 22 months ago by
 Summary changed from py3: some fixes for groups/perm_gps to py3: fix remaining doctests for groups/perm_gps
comment:6 Changed 22 months ago by
How about if the sorting fails, you run a sorted(foo, key=str)
instead so it becomes deterministic?
comment:7 Changed 22 months ago by
As Jeroen pointed out at #26966, str
is not an injective function:
sage: L1 = [1.0 + 2^52, 1.0]; L2 = reversed(L1) sage: sorted(L1, key=str) == sorted(L2, key=str) False
So it won't be deterministic even with key=str
.
comment:8 Changed 22 months ago by
Ah, right. Although I guess the weaker form of the general question would be should we try to make it as deterministic as possible?
comment:9 Changed 22 months ago by
I don't have strong feelings about it. Does it matter if it produces different results on Python 2 vs. Python 3?
comment:10 Changed 22 months ago by
I don't think so (beyond the doctests). I tend to enjoy more deterministic results as it makes it easier to debug and write doctests.

Here's a more deterministic version.

I think this caused some breakage at #27863
comment:16 Changed 22 months ago by
I don't see anything in the changes here that would make any difference with Python 2 behavior.
There is one remaining failure:
I don't know how to fix this.
