You were right. Compilation barfed on socket API changes. However it
turned out to be a trival to fix (adding one extra argument and renaming
few functions). I have patch ready and I'll be commiting it later this

Yeah, dev/release.html rules apply.

Yes. I've just decided to use intermediate tag (FLOOD_1_1_RC), see

Yes. This is my current release plan (please yell if it violates

1. tag repo with FLOOD_1_1_RC (probably later this day),
2. prepare RC tarball and announce availability here,
3. test and see if eventual bugs must be fixed,
4. move FLOOD_1_1_RC tag on files containing fixes,
5. create new RC tarball and start all over again (3).

When we have 3 +1s for GA, then:

1. create FLOOD_1_1 tag using existing FLOOD_1_1_RC,
2. remove old FLOOD_1_1_RC tag,
3. sign the tarball and move it to dist/httpd/flood,
4. wait 48 hours ;)
5. send announcement.

So like you said: we can postpone most of the stuff until we get stable
RC tarball.
