You're the arch lead for sparc, so you are in control "sparc" and
"~sparc" keywords. You also control the snapshot used for the sparc
release. So you ultimately control when things change on sparc. 

As for last-minute fixes, I think this is more of a communication and
coordination issue, and of course we can and should communicate better.
And we will. These kinks are to be expected as we're making a fairly
major transition to a new release roadmap and a more open release
process. 2004.1 should be a piece of cake compared to 2004.0 since we'll
have the benefit of hindsight.

Regards,

Daniel
