Just noticed some chatter on #python-dev earlier today regarding
access to Windows boxes, and wanted to let you know the Snakebite
Windows boxes are definitely available for remote login...
....sort of. Remote desktop login is a bit trickier than ssh as
you need to enter the password for the cpython account. I have
built the relevant gpg infrastructure to pipe account passwords
to you via the existing ~/.snakebite stuff... it just needs a
first-windows-remote-login guinea pig to tweak how everything
So, if you want to be the guinea pig, ping me on #python-dev!
(Or e-mail if my idle time on IRC seems excessive.)
I'd like to propose Serhiy Storchaka as a new core developer. He has
made numerous contributions, and has proven receptive to comments and
reviews. He's also interested in becoming a core developer.
What do you think?

I had the privilege of joining Google's Mountain View office yesterday, and
was wondering who else from the core development team works there, or in
Google in general (in addition to Guido, of course). It could be great to
meet for lunch now and then and discuss issues of common interest.
Antoine pointed out to me the possibility of using a custom repository
for testing purposes:
Is the standard procedure for a developer to create and use their own
sandbox repository under http://hg.python.org/sandbox/? Or should we
use an existing sandbox repository (e.g. perhaps by creating a new
head so as to decrease inteference)? Is the sandbox repository
something we can create on our own, or do we need to request it?
from now on there is a 3.3 branch in the main repo.
Until the last ordinary 3.2 bugfix release is done (which will be soon),
the usual procedure for 3.x will be to check into 3.2, merge into 3.3, and
then merge into default, except of course for a) fixes of 3.3-only features
and b) trivial things like typos that you don't feel have to be in 3.2.4.
default is now Python 3.4, and new features can be committed there.
When the binaries are built and all the fiddling with the web servers is
done, I'll announce the 3.3.0 release, and then go drink a large quantity
of champagne .
 If only I could afford it :)

FWIW, you can see a list of all such core developers using this URL:
There are currently 35 without a contributor form (though I realize
that many of them may not currently be active).
