Hello all,
the 2.47 release is mainly a bug-fix release. just a few improvements in 
other categories.
When I look at the release notes in the wiki, i see that you have fixed 
much bugs.
So my oppinion: make the 2.47 release now and if there are really big 
bugs make a 2.47a in 2-3 weeks.
I think it's more important to have the 2.47 release now with all the 
fixes in particle system and animation system which are interesting for 
a very large group of people instead of fixing little bugs who are just 
interesting for a hand of people. Please dont misunderstand me.
Nothing in Blender is unimportant, the GE is very good and got better 
the last weeks with the Apricot project. But it isnt a real showstopper 
in my eyes.

So all in all: Do the 2.47 now, and make a 2.47a release if you'll see 
the need of such a release in a few weeks. We really should start with 
2.50 instead of fixing all bugs in the 2.4x series.

Greetings Thomas
