first of all, thanks for following up on this.  as one of the PLIP  
authors this is mostly affecting you, so personally i really  
appreciate the feedback.  there's definitely been too little  
communicating back to you and also status updates so far.  from my  
side this was mostly due to some client work i had to finish before  
heading out to the summit, and then the summit itself, of course.   
we've kinda tried to stay focused during the weekend, so i didn't  
really catch up with the framework team list.  sorry about that — i  
hope i'll find enough time today to look at the other review notes,  
answer mails etc.  otoh, with the beautiful weather down here it's  
kinda tempting to go to the beach, too... :)

oh, and about the new deadline:  afaik there hasn't been much  
communication off-list either (before wichert set it), so at some  
point it simply had to be set.  this of course is unfortunate to say  
the least, but was necessary to — like wichert said — not let the  
release slip even more.

raphael has also done a number of reviews, but still needs to wrap up  
and, more importantly, post his review notes.  we sat down the other  
day and updated the tickets accordingly as you might have noticed.   
however, i think your point also applies here, that is it would have  
been better to send a short update saying so to the list as well.

i guess the good news about this is that there is general agreement  
about the need to come up with a better process for the framework team  
and the reviews in particular, i.e. something written down amongst  
other things.  this also happens to be one of the action items  
identified at the summit, and matt bowen kindly agreed to champion  
this.  my hope is that it'll be a joint effort of the old and new  
framework teams and also that we can pull this off soon enough, so  
that we'll end up with a much better and, above all, working process  
for the next release.  but first we need to wrap up 3.1, of course... :)

anyway, we're about to head out now — hanno and david are already  
waiting for me, as usual. :)  like i said, i'll try to read more  
review notes later today, so the the "big picture" should hopefully  
become a little clearer soon...
