It's been suggested that we should stop using 'GOLD' when talking about
Alpha and Beta, and I think this is right. Only final releases should be
said to have gone 'gold' - this is how the term is generally understood,
and using it for Alpha and Beta releases confuses people as to their
status. Jaroslav, what needs to happen for the term not to be used for
F18 Beta and future Alpha / Beta releases?
