Most projects deliver solutions with bugs. When projects are working with tight and mandatory deadlines there might be a lot of known and documented defects as a result just prior to a release. Other projects might be in a position where they can postpone a their release and bring down the number of bugs. Think a bit about the consequence and cost of those defects related to actually delivering a less bug-infected solution a bit later.
The cost of any unresolved bug does at least include the following tasks:
Nevertheless, what might seem like a relatively correct and easy decision might actually add more work and more costs and more uncertainty to a given release.
