Subject Re: [lang] Time for RC3?
Date Sat, 02 Jul 2011 04:10:19 GMT
Assuming no one vetos my r1090111 rollback, I think we can go for an
RC4. There are non-API bugs in JIRA, but I'd rather we release with
some bugs and then start fixing/releasing than continually get held

How are you timewise for RC4 Matt? I'm still very kidbound, but
beginning to get some time back.
