I don't know enough about MediaWiki to say whether we can have a private
page; in any case it might be a good idea to start building the press
release on the Wiki so that we can drop in images, etc. as needed.

Feel free to create a page for this.  I will likely be releasing RC2 on
Dec. 1 (or Dec. 2 at the latest) so that we can stay on track for a
mid-December final release.
