SImply put, I'm doing no such thing. So far I've said:
1- PDI RC1 period is short
2- Pentaho should have been more consistent and communicate more clearly on the PDI release phases (overall arc of PDI 4.0 dev/release)
3- PDI 4.0 isn't a bad release because of this particular short RC
4- PDI 4.0 shouldn't be delayed arbitrarily
5- It's a shame that more people don't download/test RCs for everyones benefit (absolutely AGREEING with you!)

I think we agree on all of these points (maybe not entirely on 2)! So suggesting that I'm *trying* to spin this negatively is wrong, and a bit offensive actually. I'll follow up with you privately, off list.
