I am concerned you missed all the QA work and other works done by what you
call "anti-payment" people. Never so much work was done prior to a
release. It certainly show there are enough people willing to invest
effort in the release without dunc-tank bait. Byt the way, my release
date for Etch is "When it is ready".
You have to consider that Dunc-tank created a conflict of interest for
every developer not strictly neutral about it and this is not a
comfortable position to be.
Given the current prospect for Etch, "we can do this better, and look,
we'll prove it" is not even challenging.
Imagine a large red swirl here.
