This comment isn't entirely fair.  Sebb's initial review comments
were about the binaries which we only created after the release was
"completed".  This is one reason why I had more sympathy for his view
that the release should be cancelled.

I also appreciate sebb's comments.  So, while he could have made them
by building our source and reviewing the resulting binaries, perhaps we
should attempt to make this kind of review easier?

It is tricky to see how to do this while still placing the emphasis on
voting on source releases.

It would be more work but perhaps we should create "minimal" binaries
(one hdk bundle should be sufficient perhaps one windows and one linux)
at the start of the feature freeze period?

Any thoughts?
