Most of the patches going into the tree in the last 2 weeks have been
pretty minor bug fixes. IMHO the current GIT tree is in really good
shape, so can't we just do a release today/tomorrow based on the current
GIT tree? We'll then still have a good 3+1/2 week window till the end 
of July for new features again to get back on the regular end-of-month
release cycle.

I'd rather release current tree now, and target the end of the month
for adding new features again.
