Yeah of course...

Yeah, sounds great. Maybe we could create candidate branches, so we can
continue to work on the trunk during those 72 hours. If something is wrong
for the release, we can fix in these candidate branches.

Yeah, it's true and I was absolutely not blaming Alex. ;)
I know very well, how hard it is to cut a release... :D
(Especially when maven plugins try to prevent you from releasing)

BTW, I checked out the code and fixed it, so the installers are working fine

Here's what's working and has been tested so far:
- Windows installer
- Mac OS X installer
- Solaris (x86 and sparc) installers
- Archive (zip and tar.gz) installers (on Unix and Windows)

Here's what's need to be tested:
- Binary installers
- Debian installers
- RPM installers
