Oh, just to clarify, the Test Procedure is not blocking the release. That's
a nice to have feature, and we can fix it up after the fact. Though I would
not say no if someone wanted to fix it up now, in time for the third round
of voting.

This is the blocking issue, for me. The tagging and branching discussion
happening in a parallel thread is bringing up some pretty major concerns for
me, and I don't think we've nailed a consensus yet. This blocks the release
from my perspective, because this is will be first release we make from Git,
and whatever we do should match whatever our consensus is going forward.
