Worked: Never (2.8+)

Short description of error
When calling 'bpy.ops.delete' without providing a 'context' argument, the method has no effect. The docs state otherwise.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Open a new blend file with a cube
  2. Select the cube and enter edit mode
  3. Execute the following script:
import bpy
import bmesh

mesh =
bm = bmesh.from_edit_mesh(mesh)

verts = bm.verts[0:3]

bmesh.ops.delete(bm, geom=verts)

# The verts get correctly deleted when providing context argument.
#bmesh.ops.delete(bm, geom=verts, context='VERTS')

It seems that all parameters of type enum or int for bmesh operators always start with the default value 0.
But in this case, the enum starts with the value 1.
This patch allows you to always use the first enum value as the default value (instead of 0):
