IMHO you can't push a release candidate until all critical bugs
are fixed and all non-critical bugs are deemed OK for inclusion
in the release.
In the open source world a release with known critical bugs is
an alpha release or a snapshot. In the commercial world of course,
this can be a final release and you can then charge for updates.
I would think the next beta should be pushed when the only bugs
left on the critical list are ones that should really have
It's worth noting that there are still a heap of issues against
CVS and 4.6.x that are release-critical for 4.7.
