dmalcolm just went on vacation.  He has python-2.7 packages ready to kick
off but didn't want to push them into rawhide or elsewhere that they might
break the world without being round to also help clean up the mess.  He
should be back beween the 19th and 21st.

Last we talked, he was thinking of building it into a separate koji tag and
updating all the dependent packages there before moving them into the main
repositories in one go.

If someone wants to organize the mass rebuilds in a tag, there's probably
some prep work that can get started before he gets back.  (Talk to Jesse
about whether any of that got done or not).  The python source code
underwent a whitespace cleanup this time so a lot of patches on the 2.6 code
don't apply without being worked on and I don't know that dmalcolm left
a 2.7 srpm somewhere so we're kinda stuck at prep work rather than actually
getting started.
