I think a 10.3.2 release that includes a number of bugfixes that do not 
make it for 10.3.1 would be a good thing. The motivation in the 
community to spend time on fixing these bugs will decide how useful it 
is, I guess. If a significant number of bugs are fixed, then the work 
involved in creating a 10.3.2 release will seem worth it.

In principle I think the 10.3.1 release should be judged independently 
of whether there will be a bugfix release shortly after or not. I don't 
think a future bugfix release should influence whether a bug is a 
blocker or not for this release.
