Okay, that's cool.

Thanks, it would be appreciated! And we can also publicize this event to 
local communities for maximum attendance.

That day is tricky. Beta Test Compose is supposed to be posted on 
2010-09-02 [*], which however is American time. Therefore, in some parts 
like Asia, Beta images are still unavailable at that day. So if you 
agree, we can have it on 2010-09-09, the day in the following week. Then 
we could at least have Beta TC candidates for testing. Is it okay for you?
