That would be the tagging date then :-)

How about this, then. It's mainly what Dirk and Allen proposed.

Thursday, 6 September: Release Beta2 (already tagged)

September 24, 2007: Tagging Beta3 (This is a Monday, does that make sense?)
October 2 2007: Release Beta3

October 22, 2007: Tagging Beta4 (Again, a Monday)
October 30 2007: Release Beta4 (Beta4 is only 2 weeks long)

November 5, 2007: Total Release Freeze (a Monday)

November 13 2007: Tagging Release Candidate 1 (move closer to the freeze?)
November 20 2007: Release Release Candidate 1

November 21 2007: Tagging Release Candidate 2 (to close to -rc1?)
November 27 2007: Release Release Candidate 2

December 6  2007: Tagging final Release
December 13 2007: Targeted Release Date

* We should probably move the tagging and release for the following betas 
  closer to each other, maybe tagging on Fridays, releasing on Tuesdays? Is 
  that doable for testing and packaging?

* Should we move tagging away from Monday? Or when will we suspend the BIC
