Re-scheduled for Monday, as Wednesday the "hackaton is coming" article goes. Might have to delay it another week :(

Note that it is still DRAFT state so it won't go out, even at the scheduled date.

We still lack a proper counter and social backgrounds (see blocking tasks). We are quite far from having proper materials and a proper article, so I have rescheduled the article (and the issue) to October 2nd.

Done!

Artwork added, article finished. Uploaded my 'release is coming' artwork to github and Anditosan just reviewed the article. Added also his CD sleeve artwork.
