Now that Peter's reported an "all's well" on the beta1 site, and I'm *fairly* certain that whatever Don hit it's not a regression (debate on that point is welcome), we should talk about what is needed to get the new environment to production. I don't have a timeline in mind for this, and I have no idea what y'all were planning in terms of servers. I recommend using virtualenv, but will defer to Andrés and Jochen on that point. In particular, if we're going to be doing VMs and it's going to be easy to recreate a new server instance, the concerns addressed by virtualenv are less of an issue. Also, if anyone wants to see something else happen on beta1 in terms of testing before we deploy, please speak up and I'll see if I can either do that myself or facilitate it somehow.
