I told you during the IRC Meetup that release was nigh, that it would be 
out at soon as we could get some more feedback.  I've been setting the 
stage for a 2.0.2 release for the last week or two.

What do you do to prepare for a release?  How much notice do you need?

 From where I sit, notice is a luxury.  We often get no notice when 
these illiterate security notices hit the lists and we get flooded with 
hysterical questions in response.  We race to address these issues and 
do damage control with the Linux distributions and hosting providers. 
All of this is done while bile and whinging is flung at us.  So, I'm 
less than sympathetic to pleas for a luxury that I am rarely afforded. 
In my opinion, there was plenty of time for everyone to prepare for 2.0.2.
