Barring some kind of data loss bug, there is something to be said for
just sticking to a rhythm. I agree that some of the fixes since 1.6.2
are particularly high value, so I would not object to a release next
week. That said, I also think it could wait another week or 2 as
planned to see what other fixes get in and to allow for proper review
of anything else.
There was that thread on the problem with copy, as an example. Will
it be fixed in the next week? I'd guess no, but maybe it is getting
some attention now. Were a fix to come in say in a week it sure would
be nice to get it in to 1.6.3 (as well as a 1.5.x release).
Anyway, no objections from me, just saying that I also think there is
merit in sticking with the "plan".
