Hello World!

After some short discussion with Dries, I'd like to let you know, that
I plan to release a beta 1 on next Monday (that is 3rd, September), or
very close to that. This should help us either get a second beta or an
RC by the time for DrupalCon, but this definitely depends on *you*. In
the past weeks, the RTBC queue was 4-8 patches long, and there were
important patches committed, like the update.php fixups.

If you are interested in having a Drupal 6 release sooner then later,
then please help concentrate on fixing bugs, review existing patches,
move the ones which are ready to the RTBC state. If you think that
there are definitely important issues, which might not be possible to
fix after the beta is released (ie. because they involve at least
small bits of database or API modifications), then please let me know
the issue links. If you'd like to drum up interest/reviewers for the
issues, then post them here in public, otherwise send them my way. If
anyone sees show stoppers, don't hesitate to tell.

It would also be helpful, if someone would be able to collect a list
of new features and cool modifications for a beta release post on the
frontpage. The changelog is a good start/reference. We should make
more people excited about this beta (because it is awesome :), so we
get more feedback, and a more stable release at the end. No patching
knowledge required, to write this up :)

Thanks to everyone involved with stabilizing this release, your work
is highly appreciated!
