Thanks for responding! (shame, shame everyone else ;) ) No more
playing friendly... packaging limitations won't matter. If we have a
tarball, I don't care what we have packaged at announcement time.
We'll do it like other projects and say "hey, it'll be available
when/if someone packages it".
Pre-holiday was my goal... I'd like to see first or second week in
Dec. A bonus to this is people can install fancy new stuff when their
families get together. ;)
I think an IRC meeting is a great idea... Hangout has limitations for
number of participants as well as is a less "privacy-oriented" way to
participate. We still have people who participate that don't want to
do so outright publicly.
