For my edification, could you point me at something which identifies
the work needed after everything is committed and before the first
beta is released?  (I can't remember reading anything like that, but
it may have fallen through the cracks.)
If no such page exists, could you sketch out a brief outline?

I thought one of the purposes of the two-month beta testing phase on
the calendar was to find and fix bugs.  That was in addition to the
two month final commit-fest.
