I'm building the i686 ISOs right now. I will upload to gerolde in my
home dir and give them to the private dev list for a quick beta test.
When those are done, I will build the x86_64 versions

One question: should we add a release to the version number, in case
we need to push out another ISO (due to major errors) before the end
of the month? 2009.01-1 ?
