Sorry, the next paragraph was probably important too:

Miguel: "It is pretty bold to state that six days (max) of testing has
produced a
 Gtk 2.7 that is as stable as 2.6;   Lets not forget that after 2.6.0 was
 released, bug fixes were applied for six months after that."

So it seems ambiguous to me as to whether the second paragraph was
referring to gtk 2.7.3 or to gtk 2.7, which was likely part of the
earlier confusion.
