It is hard to tell without a formal vote (which of course would take a 
week) but I see a more mixed reaction on  the issue of posting the 
release.   Some people say complete the release process, some say abort 
and others think we should just stay in limbo a bit longer to research 
impact.  I don't think there is a clear consensus.  There also seems to 
be a similar divergence of opinions on whether and where to back out the 
DERBY-3926 fix.

As Knut mentioned we have left releases with known wrong results 
regressions on the site before without even a mention of the problem on 
the download page.  I feel  like as release manager I should make a 
decision soon and there is not time for a 7 day revote on  My 
inclination is to go ahead with the process and include the warning on 
the download page.

Then there can be more discussion and/or a vote on the fate of the 
current DERBY-3926 fix, separate from the release discussion.
