People keep thanking the release team for the release notes, but
really... the release notes only rule because there is so much cool
stuff to talk about. A really, really big thanks to all the people who
contributed to all of those things- hacking, bug tracking, doc'ing,
translating, a11y-ing, UI-ing, etc., etc. So, everyone who helped with
all of those things, pat yourself on the back, have a beer or soda as
age appropriate, and get yourself rested and ready to do more for 2.4
[which is going to be a really kick-ass release... even more so than
this one.

P.S. Businessweek/cnet likes us-

P.P.S.: 1.3 M hits (including thumbnails) in the screenshot directory
yesterday. 2.7M hits in the dir. Seems like other
people like us too. :) 

P.P.S. We'd like to get more organized about thanking people by name,
commit numbers, bug #s, etc., but at some point that is going to mean
someone else is going to have to take over for release team on the
release notes- doing release notes this good pretty much tied up release
team for a week, and that's not a good habit to fall into. So, who is
volunteering? :)
