Yes - that is the case at the moment.

Looking at the release strategy [1] it points to the wiki 3.0 schedule page [2] 
which is says Beta 1 was to be in June; someone should update that.

I think you should have a new vote to change the bylaws [3] to change this line:
release timing and requirement decisions;
to be
release timing (not counting internal test releases and such) and 
requirement decisions;

Finally, was there an OMC vote on the 3.0 release contents, or is it just the 
3.0 design [4]?

Thanks.  (Note that this isn't directedly specifically at Matt)

Is it the project's understanding that Alpha and Beta releases are, in fact, 
capital-R releases and therefore subject to OMC?
That seems weird to me.
