Hi devs,

Reminder that we have a big 8.0 release coming up (tentatively set for 
October 30), and you can see the various tickets/PRs assigned to 8.0 at 
https://github.com/mapserver/mapserver/milestone/54 (this link is often 
hard to find on the Github interface).

I have created a visible release plan page that users can follow 
(https://mapserver.org/development/release/release-plan-8.0.html) which 
lists some hard dates (tentative as usual, but gives us a goal)   :

   Feature freeze : Fri. October 2, 2020
   8.0-beta1 : Fri. October 9, 2020
   8.0-beta2 : Fri. October 16, 2020
   8.0-rc1 : Fri. October 23, 2020
   8.0 (final) : Fri. October 30, 2020

So, in other words, September will be a lot of changes happening, with 
the goal to start the release process on October 2.   (of course lets 
see how things go, if the release has to be pushed back to January/2021 
it is no big deal)

Feedback on this plan (and date changes) are welcomed.
