Btw: the new kenerl is already in core; but yes, we should ask all devs to 
stop psuhing new things to core until the iso is ready.

From my experience I would suggest the following:

* prepare an announcment/changelog
* build and test the isos
* Upload them till tomorrow
* create torrents (I could do that)
* Announce on friday (but make sure the isos are available on a majority of 
our mirrors)

In addition to the last point I want to remind you of the KDE release which 
will produce about 1GB of new packages when it hits testing and the same when 
I move it to extra. So, it could really happen that we need to wait two days 
before most mirrors are in sync.
