I do think that another (final) 3.0 alpha before PyCon would also be a good idea. This way we can gel the release some more. For 2.6 I think we'll need more alpha releases after PyCon; I doubt the backporting from 3.0 (which has only started seriously quite recently) will be done by PyCon.
I've back ported class decorators (http://bugs.python.org/issue1759). Two tests are failing and I need some help to solve the riddle.
Several back ports like the bytearray type and the new io module depend on a back port of the new buffer protocol. Travis, can you please increase your priority on the port of your PEP to 2.6?
