Subject Re: Almost time for 0.7 beta?
Date Sun, 25 Jul 2010 20:13:43 GMT
The are a few tickets affecting the public API that Rackspace would really like to see make
it into the 0.7-beta, since they will be very difficult to apply once a mass of people have
gone through the readTablesFromYaml process.

In particular, we'd like to see 1066, 1237 and the portion of 1271 modifying AccessLevel block
0.7-beta, but we're fairly certain these can be knocked out this week.

+1. Digg has been holding off until at least beta before testing. I'd love to start this as
soon as possible.
