If you think the issues are 1.5-critical just please make sure they
have the 1.5 milestone set. Obviously we can make all the additional
fixes and enhancements we want between now and the branch, but we
ought to make sure anything we feel has to be in the release has the
milestone set.

You are probably right. All the more reason to start the process as
soon as reasonable. Of course people could start doing code review
now too.

I am going to be updating our "Early Adopter" builds on openCollabNet.
 Hopefully some of our customers will kick the tires some more and
help find issues. Our previous builds turned up a few items that made
it into the issue tracker.
