As you may have noticed, no 2.7.4 rc has been created yet. Yesterday, the buildbots were all red, and release blocker issues had to be dealt with. Today, I was not as availabIe and people were fixing important-looking crashers. In general, there seems to have been a lot more last-minute scrambling around than usual for a bugfix release.
I'm afraid I'm still going to have to delay longer to see if we can get a few security patches in. It could be next week.
