Of course, Anthony is in a different time zone, so when he created the tag in his evening, I had all day, and the binaries would still be available when he got up the next morning.
That's a good point - if Barry is on the US west coast somewhere, it actually works out to about a 17 or 18 hour time advantage for those
of us in eastern Australia (depending on daylight saving).
I'm US/Eastern, but it's not that different. :)
FWIW, I'd personally be fine with the trunk being frozen a day early
if it was necessary to get the tags and binaries all ready on the day of release - just so long as it was mentioned in the release PEP.
IIUC, the critical bottleneck is tagging the tree, so the RM needs to
make it far enough through the PEP to get to that point. Of course
that does mean freezing the tree, and I don't think it's too difficult
to do that.
