Great! However, it would be better to release on monday.
That way, if there is some last minute problem, we'll all be around to
quickly put up some 0.99.4, instead of having the whole weekend with a
new release unattended.

This is why 1.0 should only come out _after_ all known and reproduceable
bugs were killed. No matter how many 0.99.x's.
But this is my most sincere opinion, and I do not think we need to
relaunch the thread. I will not answer in anyway on this subject again,
anyway, except when things like this are said. Yes, there are
potentially bugs in 1.0 software, but all known should have been killed.

I will only redo packages for the 1.0 branch as needed, otherwise, I'll
just be focused on cvs head.

As usual.. I'm here for rh 7.2 rpms (signed).
