[dojo-contributors] 1.3 direction

Obviously I'd like to see more polish, probably less new features, and a
faster 1.3 release (perhaps plan for mod-November prior to the US
holidaze season?).  Basically a pretty major reduction in the number of
bugs seems important to me.

IE 8 will probably need to be addressed in this time frame.

I'd also like to have the new site implemented, demos and docs in place,
 a web-based build system, etc.  Basically taking the time to make life
easier for users and contributors, and then we can regroup for a bunch
of new features in 1.4 in 2009.

I should also have a fairly mature draft for the Dojo Foundation site
done by the end of the Ajax Experience, thanks to help from Torrey,
Chris Anderson (SitePen), and Tobias Klipstein (uxebu).
