I am +1 on doing pre-release build(s) if you want to, but if this is
the group statement coming out of Berlin this is pretty weak. You
have more SVN contributors in the room then there are open issues. It
seems like we ought to be able to make a statement with a good degree
of confidence on when we will branch for the release and issue the
release candidate. If nothing else, we should be seeing a flood of
new issues being added to the milestone. If the people in the room
cannot identify the reasons to not do the release .. and put them in
the issue tracker. Then what is blocking us? Why can't the remaining
issues all be closed by June 1?
I realize the way you worded this statement leaves that open as a
possibility, but with single digit open issues we ought to be able to
make a stronger statement as to when we *think* we will be ready for
