*** Please CC follow-ups to me, as I'm not on python-dev.
Is that by choice ? It seems rather... peculiar, to me, that you have checkin access but aren't on python-dev.
Well, I suppose it's supposed to be a secret, but Guido and Just haven't talked in 17 years come Wednesday. IIRC, something about a bottle of wine and a toilet seat, and a small but energetic ferret. Just hacked his way into SourceForge access (those skills just run in the family, I guess), but every time he hacks onto Python-Dev Guido detects it and locks him out again. It's very sad, really -- but also wonderfully Dutch.
