the files
  Lib/lib2to3/Grammar2.6.0.final.0.pickle
  Lib/lib2to3/PatternGrammar2.6.0.final.0.pickle

are created/modfied during a build/test cycle. Is this expected, should
these be included in the release at all?

They should be present in the installation (and I believe "make install"
will create them).

Whether or not they are included in the source distribution is not
important, IMO. I'm puzzled that they are modifed - this should not
happen, unless something's wrong with the time stamps.

Shall we close this as "works for me"? The files aren't included in
Subversion and are built when 2to3 is used, so I don't see the problem.

It's not sufficient that they get created when 2to3 needs them. It might
be that the user running 2to3 has no permission to write them. I believe
that it currently then just won't write them - but they won't be
created, either (it used to be that it aborts when it can't write them)

However, they should get installed with "make install" - so closing it
as "works for me".
