2013.4.0.0 proposal - getting to alpha

To remind people of an issue I have brought up in the past:
Could this version of HP please also include an installer for Linux
that does not
include the OpenGL-related packages? This is needed to be able to install
HP on a headless Linux server. Otherwise, the only way to install HP
is to install a boatload of X server dependencies, and possibly even the
X server itself, defeating the whole purpose of having a headless server.
