Not wishing to spread FUD and rain on the parade, but ... I think 2.2  
is *massively* less tested than 2.1.x. The main reason 2.1.x goes out  
with not much testing is because it's been used in production by a  
very large number of people. How many are actually using 2.2 in  
production right now? Carsten, Daniel, Giacomo, Reinhard ... I guess  
at most < 10 sites?

I'd love to see 2.2 out the door and more people using it, but I'd  
also hate to see people's first experience of 2.2 be a buggy one.

Given that we're still seeing changes enough to kill Cruisecontrol,  
I'd suggest an 'M' is more suitable than an 'RC'.

And yes, I'm putting my money where my mouth is and trying to use 2.2  
to build a site ;-)
