The beginnings of a Pachyderm 2.0 development schedule

We need to have a beta deliverable in October of 2004. It was decided on the team leaders call of 5/21/04 that this would be controled release, and the general public would not be invited to use Pachyderm until January of 2005.

Still it is necessary to have a working version of Pachyderm 2.0 in October with some amount of testing. I propose the following loose schedule. As we progress with the design, we will be able to fill in more details.
