Let's say I've said that the things are known that have to be done to 
get to a release as the code is already set. OOo 3.4 was already in Beta 
mode. That means (at least from the view point from the old project) 
that the features are complete. No new things to integrate. (BTW: and 
now being at Apache I don't see a reason to open the gate again.)

Maybe that's the reason why some got the impression the release is or 
could be near. Near because known things have to be done but we still 
cannot say when (time frame) we can see a release.
