[] Ganymede Release Day (was: Boston Planning Council face-to-face minutes posted)

I always thought there is a 'reason' to have the release on a Friday. But I 
would prefer a Wednesday, too! 

It's not because of EPP, but I've seen German newstickers 2006 and this year 
again that released a message like 'New Eclipse available' already on 
Wednesday. And that leads to confusion and frustration by the users, because 
there was nothing available for download on that day (e.g. see, but they changed the news 
message after a while).
