While you are here, are you planning to do the doc releases for 2.5? 
You are tentatively listed in PEP 356.  (Technically it says TBD with
a ? next to your name.)

I think this was the quick hack I did.  I hope there are many
concerns. :-)  For example, if the doc build fails, ...  Hmmm, this
probably isn't a problem.  The doc won't be updated, but will still be
the last good version.  So if I send mail when the doc doesn't build,
then it might not be so bad.  Will have to test this.  I still need to
switch over the failure mails to go to python-checkins.  There are too
many right now though.  Unless people don't mind getting several
messages about refleaks every day?  Anyone?

That shouldn't be a problem.  See http://docs.python.org/dev/2.4/
