The Python 2.6.6 announcement is going out in a few minutes. First, thanks to *everyone* who helped make this a great release.
Second, this is just a reminder that Python 2.6 is now in security-fix-only mode. There will not be another maintenance release, so please, while the tree is thawed, only security critical patches to release26-maint are allowed. If in doubt, contact me on irc and use the bug tracker (make it a release blocker issue as usual). You can also discuss the issue on firstname.lastname@example.org if you need a more private forum.
From now on Python 2.6 will be released source-only.
Thanks again! -Barry
 svnmerge blocks are of course still allowed, as are Martin's Windows bookkeeping updates.
