Agreed, but what did you expect? If anyone other than Bill
would have proposed this, he would have complained that
having such frequent releases is bad, etc...

Here's the real issue, as I see it. If there have been "recent
breakages" it is not due to the release process, but rather
the *testing* process. That is, not enough people testing
2.4-HEAD until we actually get close to a release. The idea
should be that 2.4-HEAD is ALWAYS in a releasable and "runnable"
state, it being RTC after all.

This is only, clearly, an attempt by Bill to commandeer the
2.4 release process, nothing more. Again, anyone is free
to RM... there is no need to fabricate reasons to do so.
If Bill wants to do a quick 2.4.26 with the current fixes
then sure, why not. Especially if it will be "one we think is
good", and we can pat Bill on the back for a job well done.
