Re: Bug#798009: ITP: python-editor -- programmatically open an editor, capture the result

* Thomas Goirand <zigo@debian.org>, 2015-09-04, 14:30:
python-editor is a library that provides the editor module for programmatically interfacing with your system's $EDITOR. The user can then enter a commit message for example.
Editor first looks for the ${EDITOR} environment variable. If set, it uses the value as-is, without fallbacks. If no $EDITOR is set, editor will search through a list of known editors, and use the first one that exists on the system. For example, on Linux, editor will look for the following editors in
* vim
* emacs
* nano

Don't forget to patch it to make it §11.4-compliant.
