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.
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?
Reading Slashdot can [...] often be worse than useless, especially
to young and budding programmers: it can give you exactly the wrong
idea about the technical issues it raises.
