Ever heard the saying "engage brain before putting mouth into gear"?  It was actually Rustom who posted inaccurate data as only core-devs have commit rights.  It would appear that your knowledge of the current development process is as good as your knowledge of European geography.  I would say enjoy your future in the "peanut butter removal service" but it is quite clear that you haven't the skills needed to make it happen.  In the mean time I'll quite happily carry on contributing to the Python community as best I can.

Oh, and while I think about it, you'd better put that shovel down, or the hole will only get deeper.

Have a nice day :)
