Where is the rule that says the queues must be empty?  During the  
Drupal 5 development cycle, we also had 3-4 pages worth of patches  
that are RTBC.  It's not uncommon, and I don't think it is  
problematic (but I agree that it can be frustrating).

All in all, I don't think your assessment is accurate.  As long we're  
making good progress on one or more fronts, I think we're in good  
shape.  Committing more patches makes it harder to keep on top of  
things, make it harder to maintain the quality of the code,  
encourages politics, etc.

Either way, tt's *not* my goal to commit all patches.  It's my goal  
to create a great release.  This means I prioritize patches.  We have  
a lot of great new features in Drupal 6 and at the end of the day,  
that's what count IMO.
