Dear everyone,

It's not quite time to start the 3.8 release process, but it's time to
start planning.

Please let me know if you want to help with testing and building
release binaries for your favourite platform. (If you were a tester on
the previous release, you're cc'd on this email.)

I propose the following schedule for the 3.8 release:

- 13 January: Create 3.8 branch. Testing Phase 1: RC1 binaries built
and tested, bugs fixed. Any almost-complete features need to be
wrapped up or disabled on the branch ASAP, and definitely before this
phase ends.

- 27 January: Testing Phase 2: RC2 binaries built and tested. Only
critical bug fixes from now on. Further RCs published as we approach..

- 18 February: Cut the final release, build binaries, ship when ready.

Unless there are any objections, I'll post this on the web page.
