Updated release schedule (or: valid arguments for postponing of the launch...)

The site is functionally complete now except for the bugzilla2web 
interface. But there's still plenty of work on the todo list and I also 
want to spend some more time banging on the site and let people test it 
properly once we have all pieces in place (especially the recent work). 
So I propose we delay the site launch a bit, despite my earlier optimism 
of getting it ready by friday.

I've updated the todo list at 
http://test.linuxfromscratch.org/website.html#todo accordingly; and put 
in a roadmap so we have some fixed dates by which we can adjust our 
individual schedules.

I'm going to a concert of the Rolling Stones next monday and then I'm 
off on a holiday of a week. Before then, I have little time to work on 
it (just a couple of hours in the evenings). Lets use that week (to call 
for testers on the lfs lists; asking people to compare the results of 
their favorite browser with the known (correct) rendering of the site in 
Mozilla>1.3, Opera-7.x or IE6. After my holiday, I can work on the 
remaining bugs and hopefully, within a week after my return (perhaps 
25th of August), we'll be able to do a proper launch.
