Well, the hope is that everybody wins. I might suggest that if you have
strong feeling about deferring particular issues, then discuss them on this
list. Rather than declaring the whole approach is wrong and that we simply
need to accept your position and get a release out. Instead, pick off one or
two of the issues that concern you the most. Maybe you can get people to
agree with you that they should be post-1.0.

As I mentioned in my other note, it seems the dev group's feeling is that
beta needs to be more solid than that.

[ I can speak clearly for the CollabNet folks, but I'm only guessing on the
  feelings for people like Brane, Philip, Garrett, etc etc etc etc etc.

As I said, we aren't doing that now, as far as we can avoid it. Small stuff
still slips through, but it is usually done with a thought towards "is this
destabilizing." The last big feature was Greg Hudson's ra_svn, but that
didn't impact any existing code, so it was deemed "quite fine".

That's the plan, yah. But where beta is effectively "no known bugs".

I think it is more like "sometime in April or May", but we'll see when we
get closer.

SVN needs cvs2svn in order to be successful, and that requires the bindings.
The Python bindings are actually quite solid, but for the build issues,
which I've been spending some time on.
