Several people have asked about the patch and merge flow. Now that 
Python 3.0 is out it's a bit more complicated.

Flow diagram

trunk ---> release26-maint
        \->      py3k       ---> release30-maint

Patches for all versions of Python should land in the trunk. They are 
then merged into release26-maint and py3k branches. Changes for Python 
3.0 are merged via the py3k branch.
