OK, that is more accurate, but looking at the schedule:

	1st November 2008 - final commit fest begins
	1st January 2009 - beta 1
	1st March 2009 - 8.4.0 release

How could we have possibly completed the last commit-fest and gotten
ready for beta in two months --- that is just not realistic.  I think we
anticipated a 2x longer final commit-fest, two months, but there was no
time scheduled for actual beta preparation.  I think there was some
ideal that we wouldn't need any time to prepare for beta and that we
would have dealt with all bugs by the time the last commit-fest is
complete, but that is illusory.
