We'd love to see your plan for producing builds for all platforms (keep
in mind, several of our platforms take almost a week to build!),
packages for all platforms (you thought the build took a while, eh?),
mastering and pressing the CDs (you have 650M of data. Fill it with the
BEST and MOST USEFUL packages for each platform on a CD, in an
internally consistant way (i.e., no missing dependancies)), sticking
them in cases, and shipping them out, all in a 24 hours after tagging
the tree. Not Easy.
There's lots of other things that go into creating the release... I
don't think you have thought out your question overly carefully. :)
