In the specific case of General Resolution 2004_003, since that release
currently in preparation, code named "Sarge", is very close to release,
and the previously released version is quite out of date, our commitment
to our users dictates that the "Sarge" release should go on as planned -
even while we are in the process of reaching compliance with the [-new-]
Social Contract. This exemption for "Sarge" applies to security releases
and point releases as well.
This should be non-controversial; I hope.
