Repo UPDATE: go-ethereum develop branch will become inoperable on the test-net!

Want to give you a heads up that in a few hours the develop branch of the go-ethereum repo will become completely useless on the current testnet, that is; it will no longer sync. This is due to the changes necessary for the Frontier release :-)

The master branch will continue to serve the testnet for the time being.

    >A few comments, to help you make sense of Jeff's update:

    1) This Git push does not signify we are launching today. It's just part of the expected launch milestones which we are diligently going through one after the other.

    2) The change makes the develop branch of Geth expect a Genesis block when launching for the first time - this is why it doesn't sync to the testnet anymore. However you can still use /master to sync to the Testnet (and run private chains without Genesis blocks).

    3) I'll post an update re: Launch on our blog (which should be considered the only cannon source of information) on Monday. It will list the various steps needed to 'be ready' for the launch. Thank you all for your feedback so far, which has been invaluable.
