Well, in fact, I agree with you and I think most of us are concerning  
your sentences on time-based releases. That's what most of us want and  
is the best way to go for a volunteer project IMO.

However, win32 was not tested with test3, but there was a certain  
amount of commits for this specific platform, which is why I proposed  
a final release candidate before announcing 0.9.0 officially.  
Personally, I don't care at all about this. I never use win32 and I  
probably never will. However, from the user's POV, such a test  
probably makes sense, even if there are no win32-only developers among  
Let's say if nothing gets fixed in the few days after RC, we'll just  
release it like that. You are right about the unmaintained parts in VLC.

Nah, it wasn't. VLC greatly stabilised over the last eight weeks.  
Finally, 0.9.0 is in an almost releasable state and a great base for  
further development. Your commits greatly contributed (among others)  
to this success and you know that. If you don't want to see this step  
forward, I'm sorry for you.
