At what point in the process would you place the go-no-go as to the
release of a specific deliverable as an official spin?

In an effort to not beatup an existing subgroup that is perhaps
shorthanded I'll talk about a hypthetical situation.
For the sake of argument lets assume I and a small group of heroic
people were able to beat CDE into shape as a new fedora spin.
Retro is the new hotness right...

We get a spin out the door we get on the spins page for a release or
two....we are rocking the world. And then for some reason on the next
release we all fall behind and we don't keep up with the necessary
integration changes.  And CDE is just horribly broken for months.  A
lot of bugs get set as release blockers and we are pinged...but we
just don't get the work done.....

At one point in the pre-release process does our Spin get culled from
the herd and we are told..sorry..this release won't have a CDE spin?
At what point does the QA and release team just punt?
