Hi Folks,

I hereby volunteer to write "What's New for Python 3.5?" if folks on
python-dev are fine with me taking the job (i.e. I ran it by Travis, my
boss at Continuum, and he's happy to allow me to do that work within my
salaried hours... so having time isn't a problem).

If this is OK with the powers-that-be, I'll coordinate with David Murray on
how best to take over this task from him.

Thanks, David...

Keeping medicines from the bloodstreams of the sick; food
from the bellies of the hungry; books from the hands of the
uneducated; technology from the underdeveloped; and putting
advocates of freedom in prisons.  Intellectual property is
to the 21st century what the slave trade was to the 16th.
