It looks like the most optimistic schedule we could possibly make,
assuming no show-stopper bugs are reported, is:

* Wrap beta3 on August 2 for release Monday Aug 6

* RC1 two weeks later (release Aug 20)

* 9.2.0 two weeks after that (release Sept 3)

Now that schedule isn't actually going to work so far as the USA
contingent is concerned, because Sept 3 is Labor Day.  But we could
figure that there's room for one week's slip in there, either for
RC1 or final, giving us a release date of Sept 10.

Again, this is assuming no major bugs are found to force more slippage
or additional betas/RCs.  But I think it's reasonable to shoot for
If All Goes Well.

Comments, objections?
