Could it be delayed until 3.6.0 released? I paused fixing non-critical 
and non-documentation bugs while 3.6 in pre-release stage and this could 
include bugs that affect 2.7.

In additional, we always receive increased number of bug reports in the 
first one or two weeks after releasing new Python version. Some of these 
reports are about regressions introduced by bugfixes. If delay bugfix 
releases after new version release, we could fix regressions caused by 
backported bugfixes and make bugfix releases more reliable.
