greased poles are fun :-)

It is valid and would be acceptable if the release process was better
though out but we're too close to getting it out the door to discuss 
release procedures for 1.1, let's get it as stable as we can and postpone
the discussion until next week when 1.1 is over and done with.

I advocated this in the first place.

This isn't always the solution since a lot of the developers go off
into the -current branch and play with new toys and no-one does the
work to get the release polished up. Since we're going to do a release
imminently I suggest we just carry on for the next week. I plan to
branch and tag the tree when 1.1 is done so we can work this way next
time. I'll post a proposal on how I think this should work once 1.1 is
out the way.
