Side note: That would align our schedule slightly with Ubuntu. Gcc,
x.org, some other projects and authors auf hardware driver due to that
might even say "hey, we know Ubuntu and Fedora release in April and
October normally, so if we want to have our stuff integrated there we
need to get it upstream in January/July (better earlier) to get it
included there." That could be nice for everyone (if it really works out
that way).
