Nothing, we're in pretty good shape now atm. we have all important packagesa in 
place (and a lot of less important ones too) and everything seems to be working

Although maybe make that -24 hours, so that we can make plenty of fuzz before 
the preview release, we don't want to send our announcement after the preview 
release announcement. Hmm, I think we should do both:
1) Send out an announcement that we're officially open for business 24 hours
    before preview release
2) Send out an announcement ASAP after the preview release, explaining that
    testing the preview release is an excellent opportunity to also test
