I see, thanks for clearing it up.

But, what about giving students a branch in the svn and instructing
them to commit only there ? (Chris mentioned this two emails ago). If
for some reason svn is not the way to go, then I'm happy in using
bazaar for commits anyway.
Also, are you (PSF) planning to do this now or just at the "official"
gsoc start ? And, is there some internal discussion going on to decide
if students are going to get a branch or something at python
repositories ?
