Like I said before., it's your call.

You misunderstand.  You tried to freeze v3-2-test.  You can
freeze v3-2-stable because no one can check into that except
release managers.

| Let me give an example:

| I would not like to pick that one up automatically, because

That's why the RM has to trust developers to do the right
thing and why developers have to act responsibly.  If the release
is brown bagged because a developer screwed up, it's their fault.
Not yours.  This is your game so you have to run it however
you feel most comfortable.  I'm only offering advice.  The
end decision is yours and everyone will back you up on it.

cheers, jerry
