[Python-Dev] Venting some steam on current developments

> Random question: why isn't the Mac code checked into the main CVS tree?
The number one problem at the moment is that cvs-over-ssh doesn't work on the
mac. So I currently do a diff on the mac, send the patches to unix, patch,
submit. This is okay for the once in a while I have a patch to the core, but
not for normal mac development. It'll also fail for non-text files.
There's a very good free ssh for the Mac, but it's console-only, and there's a
pretty abysmal commercial ssh which could possibly be beaten into forwarding
connections, but it's expensive (and it doesn't work:-). I hope the situation
will become better shortly.

Ok, fair enough. Who shall we blame then?
