What would you do to > make regular point releases possible? I worked on this issue during the last year and tried to find out what creates the holdups. As almost all hard problems it is a social one: The point-release manager and the FTP-Masters have sub-optimal working relationships. The "quick" (yeah, right!) fix is to find people who can work well with all involved parties and help with both working and talking. The prefered solution would of course be to let the involved parties sort out their working relationships. I will go for the quick fix first since I feel that the underlying problems are beyond my powers to solve.
