[Stackless] python 2.8

What I don't understand is why cpython hasn't been forked long ago. Does it have some legal status preventing it from that? And whats with the mandatory contributors agreement? That sounds really odd in the day and age of freely forkable open source projects.

Maybe there's a lesson to be learned that you just can't make
divergent jumps like this, and expect the community to follow.  But
then again, the community will have no choice but to eventually follow
given 2.x is closed.

Personally, I'm over it.  It's all in the doing now, we release
Stackless 2.8 because that's what we're interested in.
