No, you're creating FUD.

The past 3 weeks there have been significantly less patches.  Is that  
because I committed new features?  I don't think so.  Yes,  
occasionally a critical feature slipped in, but overall the stability  
of Drupal HEAD has been improving on a daily basis.  Feel free to  
proof me wrong, but I don't think I committed sweeping changes that  
didn't need committing.

Everyone knows we're in a feature freeze and that new features have  
little or no chance of being committed.  In another issue (http:// 
drupal.org/node/18018#comment-74279) you used false facts to push  
your political message through people's throat.  Tell me, what is  
wrong with people working on new features during the code freeze?   
These kind of issue follow-ups are counter-productive and serve no  
purpose other than to create FUD.

If you think you can do a better job, you're welcome to take over and  
coordinate the Drupal 4.7.0 release process.
