Me, obviously.  I think I said when I did it here.

Well, only the 48 hour plan I posted to python-dev.  Admittedly that
didn't say when I would tag the tree.

It seems I didn't run "cvs up -d" before tagging the tree or building
the tarball, so Doc/whatsnew/ isn't in the tarball or under the tag.

Sorry guys.

At least nothing else got affected by this.

Can some who knows how sort out the CVS mess?  I can learn, I guess,
but I'd rather not risk cocking it up.

The other changes that were made in the process of building the
windows installer and the docs I really don't care about (i.e. the
changes Trent posted).

Is this worth updating the tarball for?
