I've created the Python 2.2a2 release branch.  The CVS tag is
'r22a2-branch'.  (There's also a tag 'r22a2-fork' -- that's the point
on the trunk where the branch forks off.)  So far the only change in
the branch is the version number.

Only the release managers (Barry and I) should make checkins to the
branch.  All others check in to the trunk.  Please notify the release
managers (a comment in the checkin message would suffice) if you think
your checkin should be merged into the branch.

The release is planned for Wednesday, August 19.  After the release is
done, the branch will be merged back into the trunk.
