It's fine to reassign it to me. I don't have any open tickets at the 
moment. I should be able to get to this stuff in the afternoon (my 
time). Do we have a firm deadline for release?

I know Laurent is primed to press the various buttons for the release 
process, so we want to make sure everything that needs to be done before 
the buttons get pressed does get done.
