Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Kepler's final staging repository is complete

I don't mean to belittle either issue (or, "be hard" on anyone personally) ... but ... as a release engineer, I am too aware of the many things that can go wrong with a last minute respin and the risks of making things worse.

On which day does "last minute" begin, as we are 13 days away from the release?  As a casual observer I'm puzzled by the "test early, test often, fix nothing" mantra.  Does today's RC somehow become null and void if a respin is made and serious problems arise from it?
