And in order to pick up the latest gnome in a reasonable time our late march 
and late October releases weren't timed right?  We want to get their latest 
into our test releases and rawhide to get SOME testing before we go out the 
door.  How can this be any better?

Mostly because we don't know how long it will take to accomplish some of the 
things we want to do.  We don't know what all we want to do this time around 
and what to punt for the next release.  We're "assuming" roughly 6 months, 
but being strictly tied down by a date kind of sucks for what we want to 
accomplish this time around.

How is this any different from what Chris Aillon did, with his FF2 builds made 
public?
