I think the joke was implicitly meant by Steve ;)

You must be kidding, right? How can you assert that 0.11 will be out
before Hardy? For your information, I was already waiting for this
version back in July 2007 and at that time, there were circa 20 open
tickets and less than 300 tickets (open and closed) attached to the
milestone. There was a date set for the milestone (around the 25th of
July) but it got unset approximately 1 week past this date. Then there
hasn't been any more release date announced that I'm aware of, and
even if there had been one, I would not trust it blindly :)

The only thing that we can say without being too wrong is that Trac
0.11 will be released *when it's done*. ;)

I also hope you don't feel offended by my mail :)
