Subject Re: [DISCUSS] define what/when a 4.0-beta should be
Date Tue, 24 Jul 2012 17:25:27 GMT
I thought you might be pressing for a final release sooner rather than later, so mid August
is my plea for the soonest date. I can take advantage of more time for sure. At the same time,
I'm hoping we release by the end of the summer - but I thought you were in a larger hurry
than me. I'd be even more ready at the end of august then the middle of it.

I don't mind either of your two options.

I'd be fine with dropping a beta that hits start of august or sooner, or just working towards
4 at the end of august. I don't have any strong feelings about that - I just vote we do final
release mid august *earliest*.
