I agree with Jeremy on this one. At this point, the Devil we know is better
than the Devil we don't. While the software may look good to you in your
testing, any number of things can go wrong in the build process leading up to
the release, and there just aren't enough days left to be really vetted. I'd
much rather see this go into -testing right after release and get some end
user eyes on it before moving to -final.
As you wish.
I don't agree -- I think it would be much better to ship the current
packages, and there really isn't that much that can go wrong. But I do
appreciate that I should have updated them earlier.
