This week, linux.conf.au, which is distracting the people working on the
release and putting them thousands of miles away from where they were working
on it.   I wouldn't expect much until it's done and they've had a chance to
return home.

If nothing else, Stuart has volunteered to lock people in a room if necessary
at the XDevConf next month and supply coffee and food until a release comes
