We had to make a call last week when we sent out the press release and
lined up press interviews.  The journalists were told the announcement
would be on Tuesday morning.  So they are holding back their articles
until then.  We'll hurt our relationship with them if we announce too
far before them.  We need to give them the opportunity to publish
newsworthy stories.

But there is nothing wrong with having the download site working a
little earlier, say later Monday afternoon.  That would give some time
to test.  It also allows us to update the links from some of the NL
websites, enable the update service, etc.   But I recommend we still
wait until Tuesday morning for the announcement.
