The trunk will be FROZEN for 2.5b1 from 00:00UTC on Tuesday, 20th of 
June. That's about 16 hours from now. Please don't checkin while the 
trunk is frozen, unless you're one of the release team (me, Martin, 
Fred, Ronald). 

I'll send another note once we're done with the release. Please note 
that once this release is done, the trunk is in FEATURE FREEZE. No 
new features should be checked in without prior approval - checkins 
that violate this will quite probably get backed out. 

Once the beta is out, I expect that we'll get quite a bit more anal 
about any checkins that break the buildbots. Please, please make sure 
you run the test suite before checking in - and if you're at all 
concerned that your checkin might have strange platform dependencies, 
check the buildbot status page 
(http://www.python.org/dev/buildbot/trunk/) after your checkin to 
make sure it didn't break anything.

The plan at the moment is to branch the trunk for release25-maint when 
the first release candidate for 2.5 final is cut. This is currently 
scheduled for August 1st - about 6 weeks away.
