I thought the Board not that long ago agreed to have more predictable
release schedule with a release target end of April/early May and end of
October/early November? Gregdek for example mentioned in
http://gregdek.livejournal.com/12639.html: "we're going to start
tracking release dates for Fedora much more aggressively. The current
goal: release Fedora twice a year, at Halloween and May Day, every year."

Did that goal change again? Or was it forgotten?

Just wondering.

Oops. It was requested of us to do our final releases on Tuesdays
instead of Thursdays. It's a lot easier to get the press to pay
attention to us early in the week rather than later. I just forgot to
change the month when I changed the day.

In order to be responsive to Red Hat marketing/PR's request that major
things like releases happen earlier in the week rather than later, we
are moving the release day from Thursday to Tuesday.


The Tuesday closest to May 1 2008 is April 29th, and so that is the
initial Fedora 9 target.


Similarly, the Tuesday closest to Halloween 2008 is October 28th, and
that is probably what we will shoot for next year.
