I think that people need to see that there's progress.  Applications 
which use libtheora need little to no work upgrading to Beta down the 
road, so showing the public "look, these already support it!" would not 
only encourage other media player groups to add support, but also show 
that there *IS PROGRESS* and we are going to reach Beta-1.

Also, I think the website would benefit from a "roadmap", showing things 
that have already happened and what is remaining before Beta-1 release.

Speaking of which.  I've started a "Help Needed" section of OT for 
various Xiph projects to call-out for volunteers.  Are there any 
specific Theora-related jobs that still need doing?  Ie, webmaster, HTML 
spec documentor, win/mac porter, etc?
