Or perhaps that coding sprint come be better used to help put those
last nails in the Beta features...

So, how is this for a proposed schedule then:

February 28 as the cut off date for any new features, including any
changes to text that would need to be translated by our many
translators out there.

March 1 - March 7 as a bug crushing week, and to put in the final
pieces, including the latest translations from HTA.

March 8 - 12 to test and work out any major showstoppers. with a
possible release date 2-3 days after we declare it stable.

March 14-17 possible release date.
