Let's try this for 3.0rc4 then.  I think all it means is that I won't  
push the new pages or make the announcement until you verify that the  
Windows builds are ready and available.  We can still use python- 
committers to coordinate when that will happen, and I'll still do all  
the release mechanics from my end as normal.  It's okay if the  
announcement happens Friday or over the weekend.

I will also try to get up early to do the release before my work day  
starts, to better coordinate with Euro time.  So expect me on #python- 
dev tomorrow (my morning).

Will that work for you?
