   as a build_py replacement to automatically run 2to3 on modules
   that are going to be installed.
 
-- Issue #2315: logging.handlers: TimedRotatingFileHandler now accounts for
-  daylight savings time in calculating the next rollover.
-
-- Issue #2316: logging.handlers: TimedRotatingFileHandler  now calculates
-  rollovers correctly even when nothing is logged for a while.
-
-- Issue #2317: logging.handlers: TimedRotatingFileHandler now uses improved
-  logic for removing old files.
-
-- Issue #2495: tokenize.untokenize now inserts a space between two consecutive
-  string literals; previously, ["" ""] was rendered as [""""], which is
-  incorrect python code.
-
 - A new pickle protocol (protocol 3) is added with explicit support
   for bytes.  This is the default protocol.  It intentionally cannot
   be unpickled by Python 2.x.
 What's New in Python 3.0a3?
 ===========================
 
-- Issue #1681432:  Add triangular distribution to the random module
-
-- Issue #2136: urllib2's auth handler now allows single-quoted realms in the
-  WWW-Authenticate header.
-
-- Issue #2434: Enhanced platform.win32_ver() to also work on Python
-  installation which do not have the win32all package installed.
-
-- Added support to platform.uname() to also report the machine
-  and processor information on Windows XP and later. As a result,
-  platform.machine() and platform.processor() will report this
-  information as well.
-
-- The library implementing the 2to3 conversion, lib2to3, was added
-  to the standard distribution.
-
-- Issue #1747858: Fix chown to work with large uid's and gid's on 64-bit
-  platforms.
-
-- Issue #1202: zlib.crc32 and zlib.adler32 no longer return different values
-  on 32-bit vs. 64-bit python interpreters.  Both were correct, but they now
-  both return a signed integer object for consistency.
-
-- Issue #1158: add %f format (fractions of a second represented as
-  microseconds) to datetime objects.  Understood by both strptime and
-  strftime.
-
-- Issue #705836: struct.pack(">f", x) now raises OverflowError on all
-  platforms when x is too large to fit into an IEEE 754 float; previously
-  it only raised OverflowError on non IEEE 754 platforms.
-
-- Issue #1106316: pdb.post_mortem()'s parameter, "traceback", is now
-  optional: it defaults to the traceback of the exception that is currently
-  being handled (is mandatory to be in the middle of an exception, otherwise
-  it raises ValueError).
-
-- Issue #1193577: A .shutdown() method has been added to SocketServers
-  which terminates the .serve_forever() loop.
-
-- Bug #2220: handle rlcompleter attribute match failure more gracefully.

-- Issue #2225: py_compile, when executed as a script, now returns a non-
-  zero status code if not all files could be compiled successfully.

-  root directory, and also exclude .hg, .git, .bzr, and _darcs.
-
-- Issue #1872: The struct module typecode for _Bool has been changed
-  from 't' to '?'.
-
-- The bundled libffi copy is now in sync with the recently released
-  libffi3.0.4 version, apart from some small changes to
-  Modules/_ctypes/libffi/configure.ac.
-  On OS X, preconfigured libffi files are used.
-  On all linux systems the --with-system-ffi configure option defaults
-  to "yes".
-
-- Issue 1577: shutil.move() now calls os.rename() if the destination is a
-  directory instead of copying-then-remove-source.
-
-Tests
------
-
-- test_nis no longer fails when test.test_support.verbose is true and NIS is
-  not set up on the testing machine.

-
-Build
------
-
-- A new script 2to3 is now installed, to run the 2.x to 3.x converter.
-

-What's New in Python 2.6 alpha 1?
-=================================
-
->>>>>>> .merge-right.r62114
 *Release date: 29-Feb-2008*
 
 Core and Builtins
 
 - Issue #2282: io.TextIOWrapper was not overriding seekable() from io.IOBase.
 
-- Issue #2067: file.__exit__() now calls subclasses' close() method.
-
-- Patch #1759: Backport of PEP 3129 class decorators.
-
-- Issue #1881: An internal parser limit has been increased. Also see
-  issue 215555 for a discussion.
-
-- Added the future_builtins module, which contains hex() and oct().
-  These are the PEP 3127 version of these functions, designed to be
-  compatible with the hex() and oct() builtins from Python 3.0.  They
-  differ slightly in their output formats from the existing, unchanged
-  Python 2.6 builtins.  The expected usage of the future_builtins
-  module is:
-    from future_builtins import hex, oct
-
-- Issue #1600: Modifed PyOS_ascii_formatd to use at most 2 digit
-  exponents for exponents with absolute value < 100.  Follows C99
-  standard.  This is a change on Windows, which would use 3 digits.
-  Also, added 'n' to the formats that PyOS_ascii_formatd understands,
-  so that any alterations it does to the resulting string will be
-  available in stringlib/formatter.h (for float.__format__).
-
-- Implemented PEP 3101, Advanced String Formatting.  This adds a new
-  builtin format(); a format() method for str and unicode; a
-  __format__() method to object, str, unicode, int, long, float, and
-  datetime; the class string.Formatter; and the C API
-  PyObject_Format().
-
-- Fixed several potential crashes, all caused by specially crafted __del__
-  methods exploiting objects in temporarily inconsistent state.
-
->>>>>>> .merge-right.r62114
-- Issue #2115: Important speedup in setting __slot__ attributes.  Also
-  prevent a possible crash: an Abstract Base Class would try to access a slot
+- Issue #2115: Important speedup in setting __slot__ attributes.  Also 
+  prevent a possible crash: an Abstract Base Class would try to access a slot 
   on a registered virtual subclass.
 
 - Fixed repr() and str() of complex numbers with infinity or nan as real or
 
 - Issue #1969: split and rsplit in bytearray are inconsistent
 
-- Issue #1920: "while 0" statements were completely removed by the compiler,
-  even in the presence of an "else" clause, which is supposed to be run when
-  the condition is false. Now the compiler correctly emits bytecode for the
-  "else" suite.
-
 - map() and no longer accepts None for the first argument.
   Use zip() instead.
 
 - Removed these C APIs:
   PyNumber_Coerce(), PyNumber_CoerceEx(), PyMember_Get, PyMember_Set
 
-- ``PySet_Add()`` can now modify a newly created frozenset.  Similarly to
-  ``PyTuple_SetItem``, it can be used to populate a brand new frozenset; but
-  it does not steal a reference to the added item.
-
 - Removed these C slots/fields:
   nb_divide, nb_inplace_divide
 
-- Added ``PySet_Check()`` and ``PyFrozenSet_Check()`` to the set API.
-
 - Removed these macros:
   staticforward, statichere, PyArg_GetInt, PyArg_NoArgs, _PyObject_Del
 
 Tools/Demos
 -----------
 
-- Bug #1542693: remove semi-colon at end of PyImport_ImportModuleEx macro
-  so it can be used as an expression.
-
-
-Windows
--------
-
-- Patch #1706: Drop support for Win9x, WinME and NT4. Python now requires
-  Windows 2000 or greater. The _WINVER and NTDDI_VERSION macros are set to
-  Win2k for x86/32bit builds and WinXP for AMD64 builds.
-
-- Conditionalize definition of _CRT_SECURE_NO_DEPRECATE
-  and _CRT_NONSTDC_NO_DEPRECATE.
-
-- Bug #1216: Restore support for Visual Studio 2002.
-
-
-Mac
----
-
-- cfmfile now raises a DeprecationWarning.
-
-- buildtools now raises a DeprecationWarning.
-
-- Removed the macfs module.  It had been deprecated since Python 2.5.  This
-  lead to the deprecation of macostools.touched() as it relied solely on macfs
-  and was a no-op under OS X.
