easy, guys,

Larry, you announced your preferred release candidate management process
too late to rely on it entirely - you should still audit all the deferred
blockers and release blockers flagged for 3.4, and ask for an update on
their status, with a pointer to the archived python-dev post describing how
to request that the change be included in 3.4.0 rather than being left to
3.4.1. I know at least I have been setting those on the assumption things
would work the same as they have in previous releases, since you hadn't
said anything prior to rc1 about doing things differently.
