About 90% of what I am asking is that you simply state on this list.
"Hey, we want to release 1.7 on Sept. 28th, so look for me to roll the
tarballs on [Insert Date] so that we have time to sign and mirror them
for that date." It sounds like you are more or less saying that
already so I am not sure where we are disagreeing.
The other 10% was to include the exact text you included in the RC
announcement and possibly also update this page:
I *think* we should do these additional items, but the only thing I
*care* about is that on this list you give us the best heads up you
can as to your plans. Sorry if you thought I was asking for something
