I just went through the disturbingly long list of 67 open issues with
a "critical" priority pinging and trying to get things moving. There
are ~55 now; I was able to close some, but others I promoted to

I've never been through a Python release before, but I find these
statistics rather worrying if we want to make the October release
date. It doesn't help that we are low on active core developers,

Please focus getting fixes reviewed, checked in, and their issue's
closed so we can bring beta 3 out on time!
