Does anyone have any objection to releasing this today or tomorrow?
I've kind of wrapped up my current duties before starting a new job
next week, so I thought now would be a good time -- if there are any
major errors I'll be able to respond to them quickly.
If there's no objection, I need a volunteer with superpowers to help
me do the rollout. We need to take down apache and put up a witty site
downtime message (a la cactus), upgrade django, update the codebase,
and put the site back up. Shouldn't be a major issue, I haven't
touched the database schema so there's no migration involved.
