That is my plan also. I would like to release 2.5.2 two weeks after
Python 3.0, or on November 1st, whatever happens later (and it seems
that Python-3-plus-two-weeks happens later).
So one week after Python 3, there would be a release candidate, and
two weeks, the final release.
Simultaneously, I would also release 2.4.6.
If people think 2.5.2 should be released earlier than that, please
let me know.
