Yes that was my notion. Picking this point in development is a bit
arbitrary, though I do feel like we've both made significant progress
and fixed plenty of bugs, and incorporated the first rounds of
feedback, so, having tied that off we can reasonably put out a 'beta'
on schedule at this point. This also signals that we think this
software is closer than not to release quality. I think we think that.

But a few more items have popped up since my original e-mail and I
think we need to deal with those before a 'beta'. So, I'm on that.

Anything else need to be updated and tidied up before a beta?

Apologies for missing the call earlier this week. Do we need another
or can we maybe discuss here? I think that we essentially know and
agree on what needs to happen and that we can release after a few more
fixes.
