The bits for 6.2-RC2 are making their way to the FTP mirrors now (if
they're not there already).  I think it should be possible to announce
6.2-RC2 today.

The current, tentative plan is to start building 6.2-RELEASE about a
week and a half after the 6.2-RC2 announce date (again, that might be
today), and then announce 6.2-RELEASE a few days later.  This assumes
that there aren't any (more) last-minute problems.

The situation has been fairly fluid over the last month or so, due to
various problems that keep showing up at inconvenient times...everything
from last-minute bugs to ftp-master's RAID blowing up.  I admit we
haven't been real communicative about the status of the release.  :-p
