If you are addressed on this message, it means you have open issues
that need to be resolved for 2.5.  Some of these issues are
documentation, others are code issues.  This information comes from
PEP 356.  The best way to get me to stop bugging you is to close out
these tasks. :-)

Note the next alpha is coming up in a week or two, so now is a good
time to finish these.

Who is the owner for getting new icons installed with the new logo?
Georg did some work, but it seems like a lot more work needs to be
done to get them installed on all platforms.  This will be deferred
unless someone makes it happen.

Code issues:
Fred, Fredrik, Martin:  xmlplus/xmlcore situation re: ElementTree
Jeremy: AST compiler issues
Philip, AMK:  add wsgiref to stdlib -- is this happening?

We should really try to get these resolved soon, especially the XML
issue since that could result in some sort of API change.  The AST
issues should just be bug fixes AFAIK.

Documentation missing:
Fredrik: ElementTree
Gerhard: pysqlite
Martin: msilib  -- Martin/Andrew is this done?
Thomas: ctypes

I think we heard from Gerhard and Thomas about their doc plans.
Fredrik, are you planning to get ET doc into the python docs?

Let me know if there's anything I missed.

If you don't expect to have time to finish these tasks, then it's your
job to find someone else who will (and it would be good to reply to
this message).  Update the PEP or tell me and I'll update the PEP.
