I'll be updating the white-site...

Please see my inline comments below

Above is what we've talked about in IRC and its fine with me.  Makes 
things simpler, too.

The summary page shows only a few of the release parameters. So the 
"Edit" link is there to direct the user to the more detailed release 
configuration page.  But since we'll be releasing projects one at a 
time, I guess I can incorporate what you mean into the new white-site.

I get what you mean, so ok.

I'll try to put them all in the next white-site

ok, so this means continuum should remember prepared releases. Should 
there be a separate release working directory for this? Because a 
prepared release may get lost after a scheduled build.
