BTW, is somebody planning a 2.3.4 #yes (or 2.2.4)? #no When? #April-May That would motivate me to fix urllib2 bugs sooner.
I suspect more backported bug fixes will motivate a release.
I plan a 2.3.4 in the April-May-June timeframe. This will _probably_ be the final release of 2.3 before 2.4, although we could have a 2.3.5 if there's a need for it at the end of the year (shortly after 2.4 is done would be my pick). I don't know that we'd have a need for many more 2.3 releases after that - particularly since, at the moment at least, 2.4 seems to be continuing down 2.3's conservative path as far as potentially dangerous changes.
Note that, aside from major bug fixes, I'm not particularly driven by volume of bug fixes for selecting a release schedule - mostly it's driven by my own personal estimation of when I'm likely to have time available to do the release. Each release I do seems to take less time (yay for automation! boo that the major part of the automation seems to have gone missing somehow in the laptop theft/recovery of data from tape.... ah well).
