  Hi, Kim,

  How serious is the next deadline?

  While Etoys did create a new branch after Trial-3 deadline and
development is going into the branch, not all our team members are
comfortable with the tools enough to follow the joyride hourly builds
and test our latest stuff on the actual B4 (and some of our new stuff
is not in joyride yet for some reason).  And for many developers with
B4s, they probably install new build now and then, or stick to the
"stable" builds and try other people's stuff now and then.  And as I
gather, there are reallly big changes underway.

  Now, even if the shipment of Trial-3 happens (it has not happened
yet, right?) before the next code freeze date, the new code in the
branch (not just Etoys' but everything else has similar issues I
suppose) will not be tested well by many people, even ourselves, on
B4.  In this circumstance, how should we proceed?  Should we proceed
to push the changes to branch?  Or is it a bad idea and it should be
