May I ask if it really makes sense to release the beta tomorrow? Looking
at the Misc/NEWS files for 2.6 and 3.0, there are around 3-5 entries
for each release. I know it's good to follow the release plan, but it
also may save you, the release manager, work for the third beta (which
I think will be necessary if beta2 is released tomorrow).
