I won't be able to help out with documentation for a few days (probably until next week), as I am away at a meeting and have some other things to attend to in addition. 

If we push it to next week, I will be able to assist.

First I want to thank everyone for their hard work at getting 3.0 where it is in terms of functionality, bug fixes, and documentation.  However, I'm concerned that there are still several things that need doing in the documentation prior to release of 3.0.  


Beyond that, I think once those things are done, we need some proofreading of the docs, because I'm not convinced there aren't still sections that are out of date and reflecting 2.x versions of the code.  Proofreading (and subsequent correction) may take a while.  

I think it behooves us to push back the release a few more days until we make sure this is where we want it to be.  This is a major release with major API breakages, and I want to make sure the documentation actually reflects the codebase, so new users and new converts to 3.0 don't get confused.  I certainly was confused when i first moved over because there are a lot of significant changes that it's easy to forget after using it for a while and being as tied into the community as we all are.

What do people think?
