 I've not been doing any dev work on 3.6 but I've been following on irc.
Short version right now is that the admins/devs are busy dealing with
the mirror-servers/masters. There have been a series of problems making
sure the infrastructure is in place for them. Beyond that a couple of
issues with some of the package builds that have caused some hangups to
getting 3.6 out there.
