Yes. I was delaying battling the 3.0 bsddb migration until RC to avoid redoing the same work 15 times XDDDDDDDDDD
But waiting until all the betas have gone out totally defeats the purpose of the betas! It has already been stated that new code changes that are even remotely shaky or anything not small needs a code review at this point since we only have one beta left. Barry can correct me if I am wrong, but dropping a major rewrite of bsddb into 3.0 between b3 and rc1 is not acceptable. I wouldn't be surprised if all code after b3 requires a code review since at that point we should just be squashing bugs, not rewriting code. And if you are migrating all of bsddb3 at once then that is going to be a massive code review that should be happening in prep for rc1.
I have a sickening feeling that this isn't the only major change that may hit the betas. PEP 3118 is only about 2/3's implemented (with hardly any tests, I might add), and Travis has said the earliest he can get to it is August...
