  pyflakes complains about missing WindowsError on Unix

Status in Pocket-Lint:
  Fix Released
Status in Pyflakes:

Bug description:
  Since pyflakes website is down I am reporting this bug in LP.

  The undefined name WindowsError is raised by pyflakes when running on
  Unix systems.

  It would be nice if pyflakes would trust the developer that such code
  is only loaded on Windows and allow to check Windows specific Python
  code on  Unix.


  Please let me know if you thinks it is a valid problem.

  Also any advice about how to move this bug report upstream is much


  I have also attached a pocket-lint branch that works around this
