I should mention that I'm going on vacation. I'm not going to run a vacation program -- I've had poor results with those in the past, and I expect to be sporadically checking email. But I don't expect to be responding to python-dev mail until I'm back. I'm leaving later today and plan to return Monday July 8, back at work the 9th.
Of course, I'll see a bunch of you all at EuroPython! I'm looking forward to it -- it sounds like it's gonna be a great conference!
