Without commenting on the dates, schedules and technical issues I
would urge you to make sure you allow significant time for IP review
from mentors and the IPMC. I imagine this release will get a great
deal of attention and, almost without a doubt, someone will come up
with something that needs to be addressed.
Mentors and IPMC members have had 8 months to offer IP related
comments. They are welcome at any time. But in my experience declaring
a Release Candidate is especially effective at concentrating their
attention on that task.
We should plan on having multiple RC iterations. There are enough
unwritten rules related to release requirements that we'll almost
certainly need several iterations. But the most effective way to
uncover these unwritten rules is by proposing a RC for a release vote.
A release by votes? Wouldn't it be better to have some
concrete release criteria?
Having some quality goals that must be reached?
