Okay, then we are agreed on what code-freeze means.

As you can see, there will probably be docs corrections, so we will
need to do a second release candidate. That is why i planned for it.
If there were no bugfixes, then re-testing is easy - just need someone
to verify the md5 and PGP. But remember that the vote must be against
the final release candidate.

Only if we really must. We can still add to the release branch
if people think it necessary. We don't actually need to release it,
unless there is a major problem like there was with 0.5

However i would prefer that we just keep moving along the trunk
and do a 0.8 as soon as possible.
