[Grok-dev] Working towards a 0.9 release

It's time to start thinking and working towards a first release of grok. 
  Looking at https://launchpad.net/grok/0.9/+specs, I can see that

* Code-wise, we seem to be almost there, all the features were 
implemented but one: I've put the status of the grok-admin-ui to 
"started" instead of "implemented" as I don't know how complete the 
current implementation is in terms of our goals. I tried to comment this 
a little bit on 
https://blueprints.launchpad.net/grok/+spec/grok-admin-ui, perhaps 
others can chime in and decide whether this is good enough for now or 
whether more needs to happen (and if so, what and who does it).

* There are also two more items on the spec list that, by the way, don't 
seem to have an explicit target release set to 0.9. Let's pretend for 
now they're part of the 0.9 release anyway:

   simple-tutorial: something was started in doc/tutorial.txt. I see that
      a todolist example was chosen. I happened to choose the same
      example for the snow sprint and could pad things out here so that
      we have at least something. (It would look a lot like what I wrote
      for the screencast beta I did a while ago, see

   simple-website: I don't think it would be too hard to get a DNS entry
      for grok.zope.org and a really really simple website up and
      running. Then again, it should look at least a little pretty and
      feature our mascot in order to generate buzz. Do we want to punt on
      the website for 0.9 and just use CheeseShop or could we volunteer
      somebody yo come up with a simple design? I guess once we got a
      design we could all chip for the website contents (which could be
      generated from reStructuredText and be served statically for
      now...). Either way, we'll have to get a web site at *some* point,
      so we could just as well get started now.

Are there any other items we should be doing for 0.9?

If this remains to be it, I suggest a release in 2 to 3 weeks. I would 
have some time during the BBQ sprint (March 14-17) for example, or the 
week before that.
