| May I ask a dumb question here? It isn't clear to me what to do with 
these patches. For most of them there is something like, "Committed as 
r54386 and r54387". I'm familiar with updating the editor Ulipad to the 
latest revision, using software such as TortoiseSVN and RapidSVN. Is that 
what is meant? And if so, what's the URL of the trunk?

Yes, those are svn revision numbers.  Start at svn.python.org.

Most people ignore the patches.  Some look at them to know what to expect 
in the next releases.  A few download to a local svn repository either to 
work on the code or build a bleeding edge python to test with their code. 
Good luck.
