As I said: whenever it isn't followed, it gets screwed up.  This 
policy wasn't followed for 1.3b2.  So no one had a chance to notice.

Giving the tarball a day before release has found problems in
the past before it was spread all around and we had to go through
another announcement, etc.   Not doing that has resulted in problems
numerous times.

This has been gone over half a dozen times in the past months.  Each
time, generally after something is messed up, there appeared
to be agreement that having a day after the tarball is rolled before
release is good.  However, no one else seems to remember that they
agreed with the idea so I guess perhaps everyone has changed
their mind.
