Don't jump the shark. :) Not every app or feature gets used every day. Despite the huge movement forward, there might be some nit-pick regressions associated with the latest commits. There are only a handful of us using git in a meaningful manner. That is, limited testing and eyeballs. Thus even after the list is reduced to zero, provide sufficient time for developers and testers to actually run everything for a week or two. We have gone this long with the official R14.0, another few weeks will not bite anybody and might even help. :)

We still should roll through a formal RC1, RC2, . . . cycle and announcements. RC announcements tend to motivate some users to install and test.

Documentation needs attention, although with all of our schedules and energy I don't know how much we can do about that.

When was the new wiki and web site to be unveiled (which need to be tested by community users)? With the official announcement of RC1?

BTW, Francois helped a lot too. :)
