We used to delay releases until every little thing was sorted out. And
that lead to releases being heavily delayed, which is good for no one,
users or developers. If we wait two weeks to fix a minor problem, then
a new minor problem will crop up one week later.

Then maybe try to get them fixed for the next release, rather than
waiting until the last minute?
