Jean-Eric,

thanks a lot for your feedback :-)

Point is that I informed the LVM community about our plans to release 1.0 on
June, 20th a while ago.
My "release status" e-mails are just aiming to keep everybody up to date
in regard to necessary changes.

You are right.
That's what it aims to achive and it is good from that viewpoint.

I'm not worried about minor delays like a couple of weeks.
But with the really long delays in regard to Linux releases, there's other
opinions about this too.  For eg. commercial firms which need to get
products for Linux out of the door to ensure revenue can't probably share yours
because they can't afford to wait very long :-(

All right.
We'll do our best :-)

    Nevertheless it needs not so stupid people to solve them ***
