Cos is absolutely correct here. Strong +1 to the above.

Which brings me to a related question: what exactly needs to be released
on this aggressive schedule and who is a beneficiary of this release?

What I am trying to say is this: if GirdGain has a product delivery
deadline -- the
company can go ahead and release its product with whatever features it needs to.

But I'm with Cos -- the community has to be given time to get comfortable with
the code base if for nothing else but for licensing implications.
