We're not waiting for anything in particular.  This is just the usual slow 
period during summer, where we can circulate less-urgent changes and give them 
time to sink in and be corrected.

It's long been common practice to not issue new releases unless there's a 
reasonably urgent need.  For example, last year we were notified July 1 of the 
Russia change, and a new release came out August 5.  There was no rush because 
the change didn't take effect until October.  This year we were notified June 30 
of the Uruguay change, a change that also doesn't take effect until October. 
There is no rush this year either.
