"Lazy Mode: True" messages are just an output issue, I'm good with that.

"character entities (e.g. ampersand) are expanded again for href or src 
attributes" ( ) is marked as 
major, comments indicate it is fixed in Cocoon trunk.

This issue only affects users running in dynamic mode since the encoding 
of request parameters when creating a static site breaks the links 
anyway (there can be no '?' in a filename, so no static link can be made)

The other issue seems to have been closed (or moved).

Since I don't have Linux right now and Juan (I think it was Juan who 
took the time to try the upgrade, apologies if I'm not giving the 
credit to the right person) has encountered problems with the upgrade I 
am +1 on going ahead without the upgrade. Lets just say if we don't get 
a -1 in the next three days we will go ahead and move those issues to 
0.8. If someone wants to -1 this proposal then *they* will have to do 
the upgrade - fair enough?

I'll finish FOR-470 (update seed site)

I'll also finsih FOR-454, major changes are now marked up in status.xml, 
we need a stylesheet for projectInfo to allow them to be included in 
relevant docs with xi:include (unless someone gets there first of course).

That leaves:

FOR-391    	 website docs/site split

Which I believe is complete but for thorough testing, the creation of 
the 0.8 set of docs and the move to 0.7 as the default (the move should 
be done as part of the release process)

This is currently assigned to David, but I believe this is a job for 
many eyes now. We need people to look for problems. Shall we post a 
request to the user list to check these docs?


FOR-465    	 Logging Error: Writing event to closed stream.

I have no idea what is causing this so someone needs to do some initial 

I'd be OK with this still being in the release as it does not affect the 
usability of Forrest. So again, I propose we release without this fixed 
unless someone votes -1 *and* fixes it for us.


Of course, my proposal to require a "-1 and a fix" could be seen as 
railroading the release, it is a step ahead of lazy consensus, so I 
won't argue the point if devs feel this is not an appropriate. I just 
want to get this release out.
