To the best of my knowledge, the release managers (Andi and Steve) are
committed to releasing in December, and in fact expect to be doing so on
the 4th of December. I appreciate that there are a number of variables
involved in making that prediction come true, and a number of problems
that still need to be dealt with lest they prevent it; but I believe they,
along with their assistants including yourself, are still on track to
meeting that commitment. (If you're not, I do expect to be informed so
we can fix that; ttbomk, so far I haven't been)

Whatever other criticism of the press release there might be, I don't
think that's one that should be made. And as far as those other aspects
go, I stand by what I said earlier -- better for -publicity to focus on
doing some good things itself, than critiquing press@.
