I'd like to make a suggestion around this:

Next time, how about we post it to the website *first*, and to -announce
later? Reasons:

1) Gives the web changes a chance to propagate out to all the mirrors
before people go looking for information.

2) The post on the web can be *changed and fixed* if typos are found when
more ppl look them over (like the download link this time)


We could then argue if the release announcement should be a duplicate of
the content, or just a link to it. But even if it's a duplicate of the
content, I think it makes a lot of sense to do it in that order.

It also needs to be better coordinated with loading of the new versions of
the documentation, something we completely forgot this time, but have
remembered for some previous releases. When the -announce mail went up,
the release notes weren't present on the website yet, but were referred to
in the announcement...


Thoughts & comments?
