The complexity here is that it also involves grokproject and grokcore.setup.

I'm busy travelling, but I'd be happy the following people would work on 
getting a 1.0a2 people out of the door:

Uli and Michael Haubenwallner who did the most fixes need to do the 

* explain what versions of grokproject and grokcore.setup the releasers 
and testers need to worry about.

* explain how someone should do testing

Then Alec can do the testing.

Preferably this process results in documentation.

Then Jan-Wijbrand could push out a 1.0a2 release with those fixes in it.

We could also turn it the other way around and push out a 1.0a2 with the 
WSGI/Windows improvements.

Most of all we need someone to coordinate this. I won't have time the 
coming month, so I hope someone will step up and coordinate people and 
make sure progress happens. A release could be out by next week as far 
as I'm concerned. Who volunteers to coordinate the others? It involves 
reminding people a lot and removing things that block the process.

I really really need help to do this, as I'm just one person and I'm 
overcommitted with volunteering already. It just requires some quick 
thinking on your feet to make sure there is progress. I can help sketch 
out a plan as above if required, but really it isn't all that hard to do 
this. You need to coordinate and delegate effectively and be bold enough 
push people into volunteering work (as I did above).
