Anything that helps everyone's sterling efforts over in BLFS-land is fine by 
me!  I'd like to get GCC-4.1.2 and at least some of the Glibc fixes in.  I've 
not even had a chance to look at that patch yet.  I think we can then declare 
at least a toolchain package freeze, and if testing with those upgrades 
enables it, a full package freeze.

I'll go through Trac and reassess milestones and such like tonight, but I 
think a 6.3 release within 1 month is feasible.  Does everyone else agree?  
Now that I'm more or less settled down in my new place, I'd like to don the 
Release Managers hat again if nobody else objects?
