Let's see how much we can crank this week.
You guys keep telling me doing a release does not take much time per se.

4.1.2 is easy I think. The challenge is 4.2.0.Alpha1, but let's decide
later this week and code first.

My problem was, when do I stop ? 1 issue, 7 issues, 42 issues ?
Let's code and see how far we are end of each week.

Yes that was my idea as well but the email was getting too long.
