+1 here.

Well, not quite, but I can put in a couple of allnighters (I want to do a
review of all log-messages since 2.1-final, to see if I missed any checkin
messages, and I want to update the NEWS file with a list of bugs fixed) and
have it ready in a week or two. I don't think 2.1.1 should be released
*that* soon after 2.0.1 anyway.

I noticed this in the LICENCE file, by the way:

Python 2.1 is a derivative work of Python 1.6.1, as well as of Python 2.0.
