"We should be careful not to release this one prematurely."
Statements like this seem a little silly to me. Mozilla releases builds (nightly and Milestone) for testing and development purposes. We release nightly builds several times a day, some work, some don't. No release is premature. Release early and release often works. Every nightly build and every Milestone build has problems. Some are serious and some are minor. My release criteria for Milestones is something like "release when it's better than the last Milestone" and I think that we're just about there. If you wanted to read the 16,000 or so open bugs you could find another bug of this caliber every day from now till Christmas. It has to go out the door sometime. (BTW, that bug is already on my radar. see the "critical for 0.9.4" note in the status whiteboard? that's me saying that I really want it for 0.9.4. <firstname.lastname@example.org> aren't unaware of the bug. save your votes or use them elsewhere.)
