Just a quick update on 3.6 release plans. First, thanks for the kind words. With their help, I will try my best to follow the high standards set by our previous release managers: Larry, Benjamin, Georg, Barry, Martin, et al. As you may have noticed, we don't have a release schedule for 3.6 published yet. One, we've all been busy getting 3.5.0 out the door. Two, with the experimental overlap of next release feature development with the stabilization of the current feature release, feature work for 3.6 has been underway since the feature code freeze for 3.5 (3.5 beta 1). We hope to take advantage of that overlap to shorten the release cycle for 3.6. Three, since accepting the RM role for 3.6 earlier this year, unexpected events - primarily a transcontinental relocation - have taken most of my time for the past few months. Things are now settling back down to a new normal and, starting in about a week, I look forward to devoting a significant amount of time to Python-dev, and specifically 3.6, going forward. I plan to have a 3.6 schedule out for review by Sep 30. In the meantime, please keep up the good work on the already identified features for 3.6 and discussions about additional ones.
Here's to another great release!
