Sorry, I don't want to be reckless. I just read your own document about
how you do releases (in /trunk/notes/releases.txt).

Merging and testing is done way before point 12: "create the tag ...".
After tagging, there's nothing mentioned about testing, that's done
before tagging (according to that document). After tagging, there's only
- update version number in trunk
- update website in www
- post news item
- pull the www to the life website

So once I saw the tag, that was my signal to start the release of TSVN
1.1.4.

So if you really want me to wait longer, you should change your release
document. And btw: there was already a release which you guys had to fix
two days later, but that wasn't something which affected TSVN at all.
Also, I was testing the TSVN release I did today for the last week,
which I built against the 1.1.x branch every day. So even *if* you'll
find some bugs in the 1.1.4 tag, it won't be very serious for TSVN (I
guess there can only be some 'serious' bugs with packaging or bindings,
otherwise I would have noticed something with TSVN).
