    Erm, no.  The tagging, signing, and so on shouldn't happen until
    *after* things are tested and everyone is happy, and practically as
    an atomic step with the rolling of the formal distribution.
    There're no "few days" in the middle.

    Ralf, why don't you send out a status saying what platforms have and
    have not been tested?  I would take as a starting point the list of
    platforms for which 1.2.0 binaries were built.  That way, we all
    know what platforms have been vetted and which remain.  Something

     FreeBSD: Ben +1
     Linux: Dean +1
     Sequent: ?
     Solaris: ?

    If the general feeling is that this doesn't need as wide testing as
    1.2.0, the list can be pared down.  Once all the `required' systems
    have been tested, we're ready to roll.

    So everyone should test this, and when there's concensus it's ready,
    it gets re-versioned to 1.2.3, re-tagged, re-rolled, re-signed, and
    the version in APACHE_1_2_X bumped to 1.2.4-dev.

    Ben's right, 1.2.2 should be considered "never released."  There are
    a lot of people on this list who may have picked up something from
    httpd/dist that calls itself 1.2.2 but wasn't meant to be let loose
    into the world.  Revisionism says: "1.2.2?  Never existed."

    I will undertake to make this clear in how-to-release.html.
