[mapguide-internals] Release of MGOS 1.2.0

Is 1.2.0 less stable with rasters than 1.1.0? If it is then I think that
we could consider waiting for Haris, otherwise, there are many
performance improvements in 1.2.0 that the community can benefit from so
it still seems worthwhile to get it out.

The reason I would like to release is that I don't see new defects
(especially regressions) coming in.  There is no relationship with this
release and MGE---this MGOS release has been delayed for so long that it
is of no use to current MGE development.

Checking email for the first time in the last few days and may not be
able to again until Wednesday.  

I have to vote -0 on this.  I have been heavily using the 1.2.0 betas
and RC's in a customer environment with real-world data and there are
simply too many unresolved issues with rasters where I am not
comfortable releasing until those issues are firmly resolved.   My
opinion is strong enough on this topic where I would vote -1 but don't
want to be the bad guy who vetoes the motion.  I read the remainder of
the thread on this topic and fully agree with Jason.  In short, I don't
think we should push out the release until it is ready.  I don't know
what other motivational factors there are, other than possibly Autodesk
needing the 1.2.0 release before adopting it for use as the core of MGE

At this point, I also realize that the primary developer resource
working on anything GDAL is Haris and that he will not be back for at
least a week.  But, I still feel it would be prudent to stall the
release until these issues are fully resolved and the new fixes are
incorporated into the install packages.
