Yeah, I've been saying "any hour now" for the last 2 days.  There's 
about 3 hours worth of stuff left to do (which is basically roll the 
tarballs and fix up the web pages).  Just a matter of finding time to do 
it.  Hopefully sometime today.

2.19.x is actually pretty darn "stable" right now as far as lack of 
problems.  If we weren't so far behind on the 2.18 release, I would 
actually be calling it 2.20rc1 instead of 2.19.1, but that just feels 
wrong when 2.18 isn't even released yet. :)
