Here's what I'd like to do:

- Release a last 1.0-alpha of Doxia, from the alpha branch
- Update the Site plugin to use that released alpha of Doxia
- Release maven-doxia-tools 1.0 and use that in the Site plugin
- Release Site plugin 2.0-beta-7, moving the other issues slated for 
beta-7 to beta-8
- Switch the Site plugin (2.0-beta-8-SNAPSHOT) over to use Doxia beta-1 
- Release Doxia beta-1
- Release Site plugin beta-8 using Doxia beta-1
- Start collecting a list of issues that blocks a Doxia 1.0 release
- Push that list down to 0
- Release Doxia 1.0
- Release Site plugin 2.0

The beta-7 release of the Site plugin is to make the releases smaller. 
Currently beta-7 already has 17 issues fixed.

I'm volunteering to do the Doxia alpha release and all the Site plugin 

We also need someone to release maven-doxia-tools (a shared component) 
and Doxia beta-1 and 1.0.
