Python version and svn

I'm wondering how I can match the svn versions in bug.python.org to
Python version (2.7.3) etc? When I downloaded Python source from
http://www.python.org/download/, I cannot really see the svn
version.

I do not know what you mean by svn version. In any case, Python
development was moved from svn to hg in March, 2011, before all current
releases, so I am sure they do not have such.

In particular, the python.org source downloads (tar, bz2, etc) are just
extracted source files of a particular snapshot in time with no version
information.

You can browse the hg repository on the web. To browse by tags that
correspond to releases:

http://hg.python.org/cpython/tags

To browse the current top of each of the development branches:

http://hg.python.org/cpython/branches

Clicking on a change set id in a particular message in a bugs.python.org
message should open a web page with the details of that change set.

Or you can use hg (http://mercurial.selenic.com) to download your own
copy of the source repository which will contain the complete source
history of all branches:

hg clone http://hg.python.org/cpython
