I don't recall doing this, but it's possible that it happened this
way.  "cvs tag" operations don't create email notifications!  E.g. on
Mac/Relnotes, I see that the release21-maint tag is set.

If Jack&Just agree, the best way to go about this (I think) is to
execute the command "cvs tag -d release21-maint" in the Mac branch, to
delete the tag.  Make very sure to only do this in the Mac branch!!!

On the other hand, it could be that Jack/Just intends to release a
2.1.1 version of MacPython, and then the tagging is correct.  But I
would still exclude the Mac tree from the 2.1.1 source distribution.
