I've got time this weekend to cut the tarballs and put them up. 

Unfortunately, my time Monday to Friday is always in doubt (it sucks
having a job :-).

I'm assuming the -rc1 tarball is only to test the packaging.  Actually,
I wanted to see if I could take a crack at making "make dist" generate a
rt.jar and a  That project might take me a day, so I wouldn't
mind spending Saturday on it.

I want to do the release on Sunday.  That won't give us a lot of time to
test the -rc1 tarball.  But I want to call the 1.1.0 release a
"development release" anyways, even though it's probably going to be way
better than our current "production release" - 1.0.7.

I got the beginnings of a Jakarta Gump "continuous integration" system
going.  I hope to post my results later today...
