"... first release candidate is expected in August 2011." Really?

I recently saw the elego post-SvnDay write-up at:


Cool stuff, and I'm glad to see that our gracious hosts felt that the day
was successful. I know I was encouraged by conversations I had with recent
adopters of Subversion, as well as by the opportunity to meet our two newest

I do have a question, though, about a portion of that report:

   The good news is: after the extensive rewrite of Subversion's working
   copy library has completed, a release branch will be created within a
   month, and the first release candidate is expected in August 2011.

I didn't get the sense at the hackathon that there were enough documented
blocker issues to delay our putting out our first release candidate for
another *three months*. Did I miss some critical discussion on Friday? Did
I simply misunderstand the discussions we had earlier in the week? Are
there some blockers that are living in peoples' minds and *not* in the
tracker (aka "poor collaboration and communication")? Was the write-up just
a mistake, and August is actually the *release* target date?
