[Pharo-project] [TODO] 1.3

Current status:

	==> all 1.3 builds are green
	==> Open Issues Core:  20
	==> Open Issues Full: 3

So we are now in the state of "we could release next Friday". Thus the idea is now to steadily integrate what will happen,
while keeping the status green.

Thus we can focus on other things as the Next Most Important Issue. e.g.

Get VM build system in a state so we can ship 1.3 with VMs build by or Hudson (soon Jenkins):

The idea here is to 

	a) simplify the VM story. There are too many VMs, each with each own version-number. Very confusing.
	b) not have to wait with deployment for a "maintainer" to release a VM every 2 years, but instead use the latest code base
             within hours of a bugfix.
	c) be able to actually improve the VM while in unstable.

Thus we will
	- provide a "Pharo Cog $VersionNumber" vm. This will make it easy to anwer the question of "which VM should I use"
	- generate the archives one-click as well as the VMs listed on the website from the self-build VMs

The good news is that we now have a window build slave, so we will soon have all 3 major architectures covered.
