I should think you'd want to make an announcement now, to get a bunch
more folks to test things before the 3.0 release. I've been telling
people 3.0 is coming and their eyes light up. Wouldn't want to
disappoint them. Make a /. post in the developers section asking for
people to test the latest tarball. Remember there are still plenty of
folks who don't even know Octave exists.
