On behalf of the Python development team, I'm delighted to announce the first release candidate of Python 3.4.
Question: Now that we are in the RC phases, only critical bug fixes are allowed?
Only critical fixes go into the next RC, yes (I don't know when Larry is going to branch 3.4). Further, every such patch must be reviewed by at least two committers[*] (which may include the submitter), and signed off on by the release manager.
Of course, what counts as "critical" sometimes gets debated :)
[*] this is what the "commit review" stage is really for.
