The Python 2.0 release candidate is out, and there's more than ever to do in the documentation. I've been culling through my accumulated email and making all the little changes that seem to be needed just after I've packaged the documentation, and expect to have a lot of the really small nits fixed in time for the final release.

I also really need to buckle down and work on the documentation for the XML package; there's a lot of new material there that needs to be written, but Martin & Paul are working on new text for some of the components most in need of documentation. I need to integrate some changes from them and get a new development copy up soon; I'll push one in an hour or so, but that won't have the new XML documentation in it.

The conversion tool to convert the LaTeX sources needs to be updated to the new XML code (xml.dom.minidom); the DOM object constructors have changed, and there may be some changes related to hackery used to do things like change the names of existing elements. --sigh--

Today's big accomplishment: I got my INBOX back below 2500 messages! Don't send me any new ones. ;)
