[IPython-dev] A more organized process for release 0.7.2

Hi all,

since now there's a few more of us taking part of this process, I set
up things in a slightly more organized fashion on Trac so we can
coordinate things without wasting too much time on back-and-forth
email.  Highlights:

* I made a page for the release process (currently mostly empty):


which contains a link for the next release page:


Let's keep any information required there.

* You'll see there's a special query for this release:


as well as a status page:


For this to work, I made a specific milestone, named 0.7.2.  Let's try
to ensure that we clear that page of all open tickets before making
the actual release (hopefully by closing the bugs instead of
reassigning them :)

* I did some ticket triaging, assigned a few to myself and will try to
fix all as soon as possible (I managed to kill a nasty threading one
today).  Please all others do the same, and mark for this milestone
anything you actually want to see done.

* Remember that Trac also suports 'task' tickets, so any important
ToDo items for this release you think of, which don't properly belong
to the code, can be tagged as such and will be tracked properly.

* I've tried to enable automatic notification of tickets via email,
but I'm not sure if I got it right yet, we'll see.
