and begin to realize why we need to tag things with names like RC.
if it isn't painfully obvious by now, people remain silent and aren't
sufficiently motivated to start the last push work until these things happen.
interesting human behaviour, circumvented in many corporate envs by having
managers with unquestioned rights push developers manually. in open source, a
useful tool are hard deadlines, names for releases and pushing out tarballs
that are a notch in time.
i'll bet that if we actually let things sit with an "alpha" tag that they'd
never move beyond that.
so maybe we can stop bikeshedding about names and continue with the fixing. =)
