I'm liking where we're at for Python 2.6.6. We have no release blocker issues open, and the buildbots look about as green as they get. I've accounted for all the commits since 2.6.6rc1 and I think barring any last minute issues, that we're on schedule for 2.6.6 final for this Monday, August 16.
Please, no commits to release26-maint without checking with me first (svnmerge blocks are okay). I plan to tag the release at approximately 2200 UTC Monday so that Martin can build the Windows binaries first thing on Tuesday and I can announce the release Tuesday afternoon EST.
I'll be hanging out on #python-dev as much as possible over the weekend in case anything crops up.
Thanks to everybody who has helped get 2.6.6 to such an awesome state.
