Ok, I'm going to be cutting the Python release Friday (Australian
time). This means that I'm declaring the trunk frozen for the release
in about 24 hours. Lets say at 18:00 hours UTC on Thursday 14th
(that's 14:00 on the US east coast, if my memory is correct, and
about 04:00 where here in Australia).

No-one except for the usual team (Fred, Martin, myself) should check
into the trunk after that. As per usual, I'll probably keep the trunk
frozen for a time after the release, in case of brown-paper-bag issues.

Note that this is the last chance you have to get those behaviour-
changing bugs^Wfixes introduced, so get to it! After b1, it will
become _much_ harder to get new fixes introduced.

And if there's a pending bug or patch that needs some lovin', add
a comment to it or mail me - I think I've responded to, or fixed,
all the ones I've been told about, but if I missed one, tell me
