Looks good. Should help keep us organized; I'll add it to my list of
things to monitor and if we add it into the release instructions I'm
sure it'll become organic.

Our basic resource is time. So we can organize our time more
efficiently (ie the various wiki pages that are going up), we can
decrease the effort needed to do tasks (release - automation, develop
- find a way to allow dependencies) and we can increase the amount of
time available (more committers).

Dividing might need to happen someday, I've some thoughts on that that
I'm bouncing off of people at ApacheCon before posting to general@.
I've a mad scheme :)
