R1/beta3 Timeline

Approved: This has been approved after a 7 day RFC period on the mailing list.

Small changes may happen, but this is our target!

A lot of these actions will be coordinated by the release coordinator and a sysadmin.

Update: July 11th - I'm choosing to bump the target day for the release by one week. This will give additional time for bug squashing in WebPositive.
