That's a ridiculous accusation, bordering on malicious. Larry isn't
"developing Python in private". He is simply working on something that
he'll release when he feels comfortable releasing it.

Maybe because 1000s of people are apparently ready to micro-manage and
criticize Larry's work and waiting for him to screw up? Why are you trying
to tell Larry how to use his tools? Larry *volunteered* to be the release
manager and got widespread support when he did. If you don't trust him, go
fucking fork the release yourself.

And that's exactly why Larry is holding off pushing.
