[plt-dev] Pre-Release Checklist for v4.2.1 -- Pinging Sam

So, of course, I had a big demo today and, you guessed it, DrScheme wouldn't
load. I had already rolled back to 4.1.5 because this code doesn't run under
4.2 (or 4.2.1) - we're tracking that down. I reloaded PLT Scheme, etc., but
that didn't work. Eventually, I looked here and saw the problem. Not being
clever enough to just change the date on my laptop, I downloaded 4.1 and ran
the demo under it - which meant loading all my PLaneT packages, etc. But,
the demo was successful in the end.

Anyway, I was wondering if we could get a list of all the developer's
birthdays and significant holidays - Easter (obviously it has to have an
Easter egg or what would be the point), Thanksgiving, Texas Independence
Day, Talk Like a Pirate Day, etc - so we can schedule demos around them.

Oh, and Happy Birthday, Eli.
