Re: timeline for 5.0.4+edu1 in mid March 2010


apologies for further delay... besides that I moved eight days ago (which was 
unexpected when I published the original timeline on February 16th(!)) and 
didnt have internet here on the 2nd day as planned, I was also unmotivated to 
fix that faster and then slow(er) to catchup/proceed with various stuff since 
exactly a week ago today, I had to bury my wonderful dog after he accompanied 
me for more then 13 years...

On the plus side, due to the lack of internet, I managed to unpack everything 
already and almost set everything up :-)

This has happened as well.

I expect to do this (^) tomorrow.

I now plan to release rc1 and start drafting the international press 
announcement on saturday, the 13th.

Current estimates: rc2 on the 20th now (if no issues are found in rc1, do 
final release on the 22nd instead).

I think it's actually quite likely there are no issues in rc1 :-)

Current estimates: if issues are found in rc1 (but not in rc2..), the 24th is 
the last upload day for d-e-i and d-e-d for new translations, final release 
on the 26th.
