Hi, all

On 20 Jun, Matz, ko1, shyouhei and I told about the release management
of Ruby 1.9. And the management tasks were assigned to me.

At first, I want to decide what features to be included in Ruby 1.9.1.

== Schedule
As mentioned before (http://www.infoq.com/news/2008/07/rubykaigi),
Ruby 1.9.1 will be released at 20 Dec.

I intend to release snapshots as bellow:
* 1.9.0-3 snapshot release  at 25 Jul
* 1.9.0-4 snapshot release  at 25 Aug
* 1.9.0-5 snapshot release
   and feature freeze       at 25 Sep
* 1.9.1 rc1                 at 25 Oct
* 1.9.1 rc2                 at 25 Nov
* 1.9.1                     at 20 Dec

== Features to be included
I must decide what to be included and what not to be included.
For example,
* Of course, YARV itself will be included. It have already been merged.
* Multi-VM will not, because it needs more time. ko1 said it will be
implemented by 1.9.5 :-)

Committers and anyone who intend to write patches, let me know your
plan. What features will be implemented by 25 Sep? What will not?

* How about the improved version of transcode?
* What platforms should be supported?
  * How about OS/2?
  * How about VMS? Can anyone build the trunk version on VMS?
