The Python 2.6.6 announcement is going out in a few minutes. First, thanks to
*everyone* who helped make this a great release.
Second, this is just a reminder that Python 2.6 is now in security-fix-only
mode. There will not be another maintenance release, so please, while the
tree is thawed, only security critical patches to release26-maint are
allowed. If in doubt, contact me on irc and use the bug tracker (make it a
release blocker issue as usual). You can also discuss the issue on
security(a)python.org if you need a more private forum.
From now on Python 2.6 will be released source-only.
 svnmerge blocks are of course still allowed, as are Martin's Windows
