The answer to your second question is "yes".  Channelling the
Pythoneers: bugfixes, especially small ones, can go in at any time,
but the sooner the better so they get more testing.  Build problems
can be complicated, so I'd suggest getting your Cygwin patches in as
soon as possible, but if the patches are small and "obviously correct"
or only affect Cygwin builds, there shouldn't be much controversy over

The real deadline applies to PEPs.  I'd expect that no significant new
features would be added after 2.3b1, so a PEP written after that date
would have to be deferred until Python 2.4.
