so where does it say that it is a requirement to pull tons of commits into betas which are not relevant to support the transition from an old minecraft version to a new minecraft version? without checking every commit in the last couple of days in detail around 50% of them are features or don't have anything to do with 1.2.3 directly. Dinnerbone commited the last time to bukkit at the 2nd of March and to craftbukkit on the 9th.. at least on the official branch... EvilSeph is doing a lot, but also mainly accepting commits from bleeding. atm the main effort at least to an outstander is going into bleeding and fixing old stuff, not really going for an RB of 1.2.3 oh... and btw: that post neither explains why we don't have an RB yet.. I know that the beta was introduced and why.. but perhaps I have a different idea what to expect AFTER a minecraft update and during the normal time of developing. so enlighten me mbaxter: The release schedule is now like this: MC Update => Beta => Beta => Beta times X => RB => ????? and also please enlighten me and the others here: what are the 4 core members of the bukkit team doing? EvilSeph is explained by pulling commits, backreving fixes for 1.1 and making own commits.
