I haven't moved anything, I just changed the names.

Please tell me what the correct "compose RC date" is.  Thinking about it 
a little more I'm still not clear on our methodology.  We need a few 
specific dates that fit to get the time frame correct:

1) Date blocker list must be clear or slip the release
2) Date build RC (same day or day after #1)
3) <input from QA on how many days to test the RC w/ allowance for 
finding problems in RC>

Note that #3 must be done by Thursday 2009-10-29 to start staging the 
content to the mirrors for GA on 2009-11-03.

We also need to decide now what our contingency plan and schedule 
consequences will be if the blocker list is not clear for #1.

When is the meeting between Releng and QA to review the schedule?  I'd 
like to be there.
