Thanks for your mail -- it's useful feedback.

I think the real issue is the effort of making another release. Also
remember that there is a freeze period required for any release --
only a showstopper bug would cause us to release a ".1" *immediately*
after a ".0", without the testing period. There's also the question
of whether a 1.0.9 is appropriate.

(I don't recall anyone saying that loss of face was a reason not to
release 1.1.1 right away. Are you thinking of a specific mail you
saw, or are you just guessing about people's motivations?)

It's late here, so instead of launching a new thread proposing that we
do 1.1.1/1.0.9 (and volunteer to manage the releases, since this
situation isn't the regular RM's fault), I'm going to sleep on it and
make sure that's something I really want to propose. So forget you
ever heard this :-). (Of course, someone else could bring it up
before tomorrow.)
