A lot got done over the last couple of days to close out open issues for 9.5, and we're now at a point where we could realistically produce an RC package. However, we're also staring the holiday season in the face. If we were to do a wrap per normal schedule next week, we'd be announcing on Christmas Eve, not a schedule calculated to draw much attention from potential testers. The week after is no better. So either we do it *right now*, or we slip until the new year.
Accordingly, the release team has decided to wrap 9.5RC1 today, Tuesday, for announcement Friday the 18th. I'll start making the tarballs around 5PM (2200 UTC). Sorry for the short notice, but there's no better way. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
