This is a few days later than originally hoped for --- largely due to unexpected travel schedules of Ondrej and I, but it does give people a few more days to get patches in.  Of course, we will be able to apply bug-fixes to the 1.7.x branch once the tag is made.

These blockers could certainly delay the rc1 release, but would they need to hold up the beta?
