All builds are done for Luna SR2, and many people doing final
testing and preparing for the formal release in one week (2/27) -- unless
some blocking issue is discovered.
Remember that "continued testing" is important
for two reasons. One is to look for truly "damaging" regressions
or blocking problems, that would require a "respin" of the Simultaneous
Release repo and EPP Packages. A respin would be rare ... but ... has happened.
The second reason is for projects to find regressions or problems which
might not justify a "rebuild of everything" but, which are bad
enough that individual projects can prepare a "feature patch"
... or, perhaps document a work-around.
So, where are these "done builds"? We traditionally
don't promote the final build candidates to avoid confusion over the release,
and a "pre-release". But for those of you who need them for testing
or "product builds" you can find the proposed to-be-released
bits in a couple of places.
For those building downstream products
or documentation, the "final locations" are often available early
next week, from individual projects, but are not generally "visible"
so you need to know the exact specific URL where you can get or document
the final bits from their final locations. If you can't infer the final
URL, you can ask the project for some hints. (Most project follow predictable

will be 10 AM Eastern, on 2/27. Be sure the check this cross-project list
for any last minute problems or "wait!" announcements. Otherwise,
usually about 10:15 or 10:30, we'll send a note that "Luna SR2 is
