-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I'm not going to release rc1 tonight. There are too many open release
blockers that I don't want to defer, and I'd like the buildbots to
churn through the bsddb removal on all platforms. Let me first thank
Benjamin, Brett, Mark and Antoine for their help on IRC tonight.
Here are the issues I'm not comfortable with deferring:
3640 test_cpickle crash on AMD64 Windows build
874900 threading module can deadlock after fork
3574 compile() cannot decode Latin-1 source encodings
3657 pickle can pickle the wrong function
3187 os.listdir can return byte strings
3660 reference leaks in 3.0
3594 PyTokenizer_FindEncoding() never succeeds
3629 Py30b3 won't compile a regex that compiles with 2.5.2 and 30b2
In addition, Mark reported in IRC that there are some regressions in
the logging module.
I appreciate any feedback or fixes you can provide on these issues.
You might also want to look at the deferred blockers to see if there's
anything that really should be blocking rc1.
I'd like to try again on Friday and stick to rc2 on the 17th.
