At this point, I do not have a lot of confidence to pick a reliable
substitute date. Once we have a 15.3 release *done*, I'm thinking
adding a couple of weeks after that point is probably the most
sensible thing we can do. That's enough notice for the teams, I hope?
And it will be enough time to get stuff reviewed and signed. I'll be
one of the people driving the review process, and the reviews for this
round should be minimal - we'll be using a totally vanilla new release
with no local patches.
I'll keep you updated as soon as i have any news.
