That's a really good idea. In fact, I wouldn't set a static release date at all. You guys should
try fixing all the bugs that poped up in the -RC1 and release a second RC. Continue in that fassion
until there are no major bug reports filed in let's say...two weeks.
Of course people want 5.3 to be released as quickly as possible, but the very same people will
complain, if that RLEASE will only have a single bug in it. Having one or more major or even fatal
bugs in 5.3-RELEASE could be really nasty. High traffic load in mailing lists, ISO hash changes,
And please don't forget 4.11. ;)
