My own personal hope is that *decisions* about Python that affect Debian and Ubuntu are made here, even if the implementation, and timing of the availability of those decisions, come in Ubuntu first. I think that's an important distinction to make. These kinds of skew problems stem, IMHO, from the fundamentally different release cycles of upstream Python, Debian, and Ubuntu. Python releases new versions "when ready" but approximately time-based to every 18 months. Debian releases strictly "when ready", and Ubuntu releases every 6 months. These are very difficult differences to reconcile. -Barry  Please do not read into this any implied judgement about the different cycles.
