my stuff is done. I've announced it on the pythonmac-sig and 
given people there 12 hours to find any showstopper bugs, so 
unless I ask you not to go ahead within twelve hours it's all 
yours (I understand that we're not doing sf releases anymore, 
and I don't have access to creosote). The files are in 
http://www.cwi.nl/ftp/jack/python/mac, you want MacPython221full 
(both .hqx and .bin) and MacPython221src (both .hqx and .sit). 
You may also want MacPython221MacOS81patch (.hqx and .sit) which 
makes this release run on really old MacOS versions.

If you are going to put a blurb in your message announcing 2.2.1 
there are two fixes in it that are very important to Mac users:
- This release finally works on Mac OS X multiprocessors
- The IDE is now fully functional on Mac OS X.
