	That I do disagree with. The complaint was precise -- the RELEASE was not
stable.

	While it did not contain enough information to solve the problem, there are
certainly possible solutions to it. For example, RELEASEs could be frozen a
bit longer prior to actual release. More effort could be made to obtain
wider testing for pre-RELEASEs. The RELEASE stream could be split off of
STABLE earlier and allowed to stabilize without bouncing STABLE around with
it.

	I'm not saying any of these solution will work, but I am saying that he
provided enough information to identify the problem class.

	DS
