Personally, I don't see that rushing it out before JavaOne is _that_
important. It sure would have been nice to be able to announce it there, but
it's not the end of the world if we end up going GA a week later. Meaning,
my preference would be for the latter option.

I'm trying to find the motivation for Plan A.  Because if we do that,

Well, it also allows some of us who've been out of the loop for a few days
to take a closer look at 1.3.4 and make sure there's nothing else missing,
as well as get it into our apps and take it for a spin.

I don't see how you could make any of us unhappy, Wendy, given how much work
you've been putting into this! The current situation isn't your fault, by
any stretch of the imagination. It's our collective fault for not having
been sufficiently dilligent in testing the builds you've been producing.
Ultimately, it's the community's responsibility to ensure that what we have
is top quality, not the RM's.
