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.
