Sounds great to me.  Before we get to 2.0, I'd like to have got
through some more fixing, and I'd also like to make sure we have
really good release notes: complete NEWS, information about any
changed or removed APIs, how to transition, and so on.  Plus the
better doc on Guile's mission that we've discussed.  I think those
things are all achievable by October 15th, so I'm happy with that

As regards the mechanics of releasing: recently Ludovic has handled
that.  Will you be OK to continue doing the releases to Andy's
proposed schedule, Ludo; or Andy are you proposing to handle the
release process yourself instead?
