For those not on IRC...

I'm going to probably wait until Tuesday (Monday is a bank holiday in
the UK) to do the release.  We found a number of issues notably with
AWT on IcedTea builds (but not in JDK7).
This also gives some time to see if there is any further build drops
from Sun.  I think b60 was deemed unnecessary, but there's not been
any clear notification that I've seen.

Zero now works.  I'm fixing some issues with the Shark build at
present.  I will tag and email again once these issues are cleared up,
and people can test from that tag.
