When we tag and roll 2.4.0, if it isn't up to snuff, it won't pass the
vote for GA, but perhaps it will pass the vote for beta (or alpha).

I'm not sure where the impetus came from to change the way the HTTP
Project operates at this particular point in time.  It certainly hasn't
been discussed much on this list, or put up for a vote.  The methodology
for handling releases was all hashed out a number of years ago and was
assembled from consensus.  Has that consensus changed?
