Okay.  Unsurprisingly, I pick what I called option 3 before.  It's 
basically what we do now when checking in work to 
earlier-version-branches, with the added complexity of the Bitbucket 
repo.  I just tried it and it seems fine.

I'll post a message describing the workflow to these two newsgroups 
(hopefully by today) and update the devguide (hopefully by tomorrow).  
There's no rush as I haven't accepted any pull requests recently, though 
I have a couple I should attend to.

(For those waiting on a reply on pull requests, sit tight, I want to get 
these workflow docs done first, that way you'll know what to do if/when 
your pull request is accepted.)

Thanks, everybody,


/p.s. In case you're wondering, this RC period is way, way less stress 
than 3.4 was.  Part of that is the workflow change, and part of it is 
that there just isn't that much people are trying to get in this time.  
In 3.4 I think I had 70 merge requests just from Victor for asyncio...!
