Can people please stop to bully others with "relase" ?  Consider that
you give a negative feeling that does not make feel like participating.

Current situation is that:

 - A tentative release date has been announced, it has been propagated on
   multiple channels, including the "Debian blog", with much less emphasis that
   on the "tentative" word, and there was no counter-information that the the
   tentative date will not be met.

 - Some information channels (the UDD and planet.debian.org) indicate that
   there are almost no blocking RC bugs left to fix.
