Larry, saw your discussion on IRC with Georg about what to cherry pick into the release clone before issuing final. IMO you shouldn't cherry pick anything, since I believe there have been *zero* issues opened that said that the RC was broken.
3.4.2 has been tagged, and the only changes since 3.4.2rc1 are:
- Martin made a small fix in the Windows installer build script
- I rebuilt pydoc-topics correctly
- Some minor doc touchups (fix "make suspicious" output so it runs clean)
I did make a pass over all the checkins to 3.4 since 3.4.2rc1, and found eighteen that I considered cherry-picking. Five were crashes, four were nice-to-haves, four were asyncio changes, and five just seemed small and reasonable. But nobody was begging me to pull anything in particular, and I'd like to have a nice easy release for once. So I didn't cherry-pick anything.
I also didn't want to add another RC and slip the release--Matthias said he wanted to ship 3.4.2 with Ubuntu 14.10, but with their release only about two weeks away I didn't want to stress them out any more than necessary. (One might say, "Ubuntu's release schedule is irrelevant, you should do what's best for Python". To that I'd reply, "They asked nicely, and nobody else was asking for anything, so it seemed reasonable to accommodate them, and this will get 3.4.2 into the hands of a lot of people".)
