Subject Re: [VOTE]Re: M5 Cut proposal date
Date Fri, 09 Sep 2005 06:39:57 GMT
I think we've made significant progress in the last week towards being 
ready to make the branch for M5, but I think there may be reasons to 
wait a couple more days.  There are 2 features that people want to get 
in (security improvements and DDL generation) that I would like to see 
in M5, and more stabilization is needed in any case before the release. 
  I think that unless someone is waiting to get a new feature in that 
shouldn't go in M5 we should wait until monday and see where we are.

If anyone is contemplating a commit that may destabilize our code 
please speak up so we can branch beforehand.
