Ok, so we have a valid reason to release this weekend. Anyways, we 
should plan the beta2 a bit, IMHO. Can everybody agree, that we create 
RPMs/DEBs/installer/tarballs of whats currently tagged, prepare release 
notes and announcements on xfce-advocacy today and get it out tomorrow

neither gnomefiles nor freshmeat nor anything else)?
