I think we need to start by gathering together a list of what we think is most important to have right by beta stage. I know the Wiki is no good for tracking, but for now, I've started a brainstorming page at http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/WPD:Beta_Requirements

Please add to it!

What do we set the bar at for site performance, content completeness, community growth, internationalization, etc. If we have criteria for these, then we can estimate time until completion and therefore set a schedule. For each criteria, we can decide if we are firm or flexible in getting to beta, but without some specific goals, I am afraid that we're in a cycle of never ending ongoing work.
