Okay, the extra two weeks are to allow for (rel-eng?) people being
missing during plumbers and to allow for a third snapshot between alpha
and beta.

That makes sense on the face of it, but the end result for developers is
a release cycle split into a 49 day development period followed by a 99
day stablization period. That's quite conservative for a bleeding edge
distro.

Constructive suggestion for the next cycle - we should go back to a
shorter gap between Feature Freeze and GA.

Cheers,
Mark.
