I think his complaint here is that usually there is a message from me on
the list explicitly saying "I will be cutting the release tomorrow, if
you want something in please get it done." I'd never done this
explicitly to given translators a chance to get things done but rather
because usually STATUS gets cleared out a matter of minutes before I cut
the release.

I guess he's come to expect to see a message to that effect. Toss in
that 1.1.4 has been sorta in a vague state of "it'll be released soon"
for a month and I can understand some degree of confusion.
