I'd like to raise a concern that Anatoly's actions are disruptive and largely unhelpful. His passive-agressive writing style is well known but it seems this no longer satisfies him. Today, without consulting anyone he edited our Wiki guidelines and removed the "Do not remove guidelines you do not agree with!" note (yes, really):
Should we react in any way? How do you perceive his contributions in general?

I was looking at patches found in some cross-build related issues, working
around building pgen during a cross build. However it looks like this can be
solved by just getting the timestamps for the dependencies right, which is
already done for some files. So this should be done for the the GRAMMAR files
too. Would this be ok for the 3.3 branch and trunk?
Then, how and when is this command run, so that you always have the correct time
stamps? is it hg pull && hg update && make -f Makefile.pre.in touch? Would it be
worthwhile to have a shell script python_update which just does this (idea comes
from GCC's contrib/gcc_update script)?
