Well, include hardcode/geeky users in the circle. But yes, before RC,
we're not adressing more people than that and the full big opening is
really only for the final release.

The release message really has to focus on the product and what
people, everyone, can do with it/from it.

The "what's next?" topic will need to be prepared but strictly
separated, and for mid-June, once the release is at full speed.
