IDLE & Tkinter Maintenance

by Guilherme Polo for Python Software Foundation

I propose to take on the role of a maintainer for both the idlelib package as well Tkinter (the later includes and _tkinter). With this project I expect to put IDLE, in special, in a better state. This means the user would be more confident in IDLE, and developers would have an easier time maintaining it. I also intend to study and incorporate, as appropriate, the bug fixes applied in a temporary IDLE fork called VIDLE.
