The people who are frustrated don't think the process is doomed; I  
haven't seen anyone say or imply this. But many DO think that the  
current implementation of the RTBC status is fundamentally flawed,  
since it doesn't mean what it says.

I'm both happy with 6.x and frustrated with RTBC.

And I'm happy with the idea of a hard code freeze deadline. But not  
happy with issues that appear to meet the deadline, but then get over- 
looked, not committed and not commented on.
