Hello all, After some consideration and consultation with the community, we have decided to postpone point releases scheduled for today until Wednesday of next week (or a bit later, please read on). There are a number of high-priority bug fixes very close to completion (particularly for web-staff cataloging), and we feel that getting those out sooner outweighs the benefits of rolling out what we have ready today. We are also still quite early into the month of May, so we have this luxury.
It was pointed out that next Wednesday is right in the middle of Bug Squashing week. This isn't ideal, of course, since that means only roughly half of the bug squashing can get into this release. While I might simply say that half is better than none, we also plan to monitor squashing activity, and may in fact choose to delay a few more days if it seems like momentum on certain bugs would justify waiting. On the other hand, we do need to be very careful to guard against an attitude of waiting for "one more thing", and thus waiting perpetually. We also do not want to overlap with the (U.S) holiday weekend, as it has historically been a time for folks to upgrade. Sincerely, and on behalf of the release team, Dan
