[opensuse-project] ANNOUNCE: I call it a beta

We had a short go/no-go meeting on #opensuse-factory and decided
that the fuser problem may be the cause of all evil and now that it's gone,
we can go forward and release beta1.

We even managed to get most of the artwork updated in the days slippage.
If you come around it, I will upload build315 to the mirrors tomorrow morning.

When to announce publically I leave to the marketing guys, I'll be mainly
off the internet till tuesday as monday is public holiday for me and I'm told
publishing news on friday is bad - but I'll make sure the ISOs are available
for interested testers. I hope that's ok for the team.

Now the interesting question is what about the RC1. We didn't really loose
time in development as we checked in almost everything that came in during
the time we waited for the fixes - this includes e.g. kernel 3.1rc7. But we
can't hold the schedule as it is - the original deadline for RC1 checkins is
october 7th - that's around 4 days after public announcment of the beta
and even before the pizza party.

With the new factory work flow we have some more flexibility in terms of
checkin deadlines, so let's make use of that. My proposal would be:

Move RC1 from October 13th to 21st for release date - checkin deadline
would be 18th.

Move RC2 from October 27th to November 3th - checkin deadline would be
October 28th (November 1st and the monday in front are blackout in Nuremberg
and we rely too much on Nuremberg to move the date where it's perfect ;( )

Move Final release from November 11th (who set that date anyway? :) to
November 16th. GM would be on 11th.

Note, that I don't want to move the final date too much and if we all agree to
some discipline, RC2 will already be perfect and we only apply some polishing
up to GM. I know that shuffles our usual weekdays for release a bit and I'm
pretty sure I made some mistakes in my proposal, so please feel free to
give ideas of yours.

Greetings, Stephan
