Unfortunately it took a bit longer than I thought to get binary packages.
So yes, an alpha 2 might not make as much sense anymore as we had hoped

Now that we have the packages, I think our main focus should be to get the
beta out. From the implementation side I think we're in an ok shape for a
beta, so it's mostly about making sure the packaging is good and testing
that we don't have any bigger showstoppers.
