One week delay

There are many rough edges to the Core5 release. 
I personally would want the extra week(s) spent on cleaning up.

My nuances
I found  XEN version will not power off after a shutdown command
I found that any user, including guest, could issue a shutdown command
I found that there are still keyboard definition problems that are not solved

I agree that having an extra week or even two, where developers can clean up stuff and not have to respond to this newsletter will be more beneficial than having them constantly working in reaction mode.
I can wait. I want core5 as stable as is core4.

Due to circumstances outside of our control, we're going to be unable 
keep to the scheduled date of March 15th for the release of FC5 and
instead are going to have to make the release date Monday, March 20th.
While unfortunate in some ways, this gives us the opportunity to pull 
the final GNOME 2.14 tarballs which should be available on Monday
assuming the changes are suitably minor.
