As you'll have noticed, that didn't happen. We are now looking at
releasing 6.0.2 on June 25th, i.e. in a little over two weeks from now.

How are things going? In order to ensure that we have time to get the
kernel available on all architectures and then perform a respin of the
installer to pull in the updated kernel, we work on a schedule of having
the kernel uploaded two weeks before the point release - for 6.0.2, that
would mean over the coming weekend.
