[Releasing] Proposing Alpha2 again

I would like to release the beta. There are some small things needed and we are good to go.

Details in the bugreports, but mainly:

- Update to get latest modules with fixes into release

- Docs did not compile, hopefully fixed soon

- Readme still from Alpha?

- Marketing, at least wiki, blogs, ...

Those I remembered, now in airport heading home. But there should not be much more.

We need to get the beta out soon in order to get feedback from users.

What's the status of the *source* packages?

I really don't see us releasing beta1 by the end of the next week. I haven't
seen any split source packages yet, which means there has been no testing in
the official source release form.

Can we say that we *WILL* release something next week, be it:
- alpha 2
- beta 1

Whichever we're ready for.

Moreover, I propose that we release *something* every 2 weeks from that point
on. Whether it's called alpha or beta is just a matter of quality of the
sources we produce.

The reason for asking this is because there are lots of people using the first
alpha for trying out Qt 5. That's old. There's absolutely no gain in them
trying the alpha, since any feedback they can give will be stale. It will only
add to their frustration.
