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

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).
