Well, to be honest: RC7 is RC6; we just had a release hiccup :D
but wait, don't go back to 6 because 7 is such a good Prime number with clean exotic lines and so Biblical with Canonical form and proportion; so we expect good things to result from 7, and the team surely needs to rest after Gold :)

And Daniel asked the LORD, "How many Release Candidates shall phpBB have?"
The LORD answered, "Seventy Times Seven."

You get to choose two.
Good, Fast and Cheap, pick Two.

Well, we’ve never had the "Fast" reputation, so I think we’ll pick Good and Cheap. :D
Why change now. :P

I'm not totally sure about that, ref. :
To not let these things happen again we will (as i have noted previously) change the release structure a little bit, beginning with the gold release. This change will see a Release Candidate for every minor release, meaning before 3.0.1 gets released for example, there will be a release candidate for this version before.
Please especially note :
beginning with the gold release
I mean : You can't totally exclude, that there will be a "release candidate for Gold" (A "frontrunner release candidate" for phpBB 3.0.0, outside the normal RC versioning) for frontrunner people to take the hits for something minor and report it, a release candidate for the final, before the final-final))

BTW : Did you know that it's a well preserved secret which recursive acronym is contained in "phpBB" : P Halfdone Pizza Bulletin Board or P Hot Pizza Bulletin Board ?

- Because basicly it is like the pizza man leaning inn over the table in the Pizzaria, looking the impatient, ranting and complaining customer directly in the eyes :
Do you want it now, or do you want it when it's ready?!
If you want it now, you can grab a RC or a CVS.

If you want it when it's ready you wait for Gold.

Err, no, it's actually a reverse acronym:
PHPBB3 = Free Bulletin Board, Please Have Patience.

Looks like the development has come to a stand still :(
The pile of new bugs is building up :(

Is there still any action going?

Yes, waiting if something worth fixing emerges before declaring Gold.
