I've cut the release24-maint branch, and updated the Include/patchlevel.h on trunk and branch (trunk is now 2.5a0, branch is 2.4+)
The trunk and the branch are now both unfrozen and suitable for checkins. The feature freeze on the trunk is lifted. Remember - if you're checking bugfixes into the trunk, either backport them to the branch, or else mark the commit message with 'bugfix candidate' or 'backport candidate' or the like.
Next up will be a 2.3.5 release. I'm going to be travelling for a large chunk of December (at very short notice) so it's likely that this will happen at the start of January.
OK, I will send out an email to python-list and python-announce mentioning this to the community and that if they have fixes they need to go into 2.3.5 they need to get it in ASAP so there is enough time to consider them (with no guarantee they will get in) at the end of the week if no one objects.
