"Time-based" still isn't stability-based. I'm all for letting the
release date slip if it means we get a better-rounded release. I
personally think it should be up to the RM's discretion. If the RM does
a bad job, the developers will complain, and either he will learn, or
there will be a new RM - it doesn't get much more simple than that.

Obviously the lack of any publicly-raised objections indicates some
level of developer faith in the RM; are there any objections anyone has
now in the RM's ability that weren't raised at the time? If there are,
I'd like to know, as the RM is an absolutely crucial position for any
