We are fixing bugs for 2 months now, so time can't be the issue. We have
to clearly identify the bugs that need to be fixed, then just do it and
move on. The new stuff is probably piling up in the local repositories,
this stagnation is quite annoying.
So i can partly understand why Karl pushed out  but it introduced
a couple of bugs and there may be more to come. Do we really need this
And Dirk, you do the final decisions, so could you please be a little
more verbose and clearly state what you think needs to be fixed?
Especially if deadlines are missed, a status update wouldn't hurt.
Happy coding :)
