Assumed m68k would be able to kill (most of) the backlog in time, what would
prevent m68k from becoming releasable?
  - It didn't sustain the `95%' rate during the last x months?
  - Some packages still don't build?
  - The release team has to come back on a decision made a while ago?
  - ...?



P.S. This email is not meant to be offensive. I'd just like to have a clear,
     objective list of reasons, so we know towards what to work.

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
