At this point, I am sure that Barry would prefer leaving things alone for 2.6.

I am surprised that there are separate lists. I thought there was just one which distributions grabbed when made.

I suppose that one could claim that someone who only contributes to a branch after it branches off should not be listed for other branches, but in the absence of an automatic addition mechanism and dependence on hand-addition by committers, that does not work so well.

Certainly, Guido's header does not specify 'this release'.

versions:  -Python 2.6, Python 2.7
