However I'm sure there are lots of uploads just before which is good. I
think we need a widely publisized one _well_ in advance to avoid a rush.
At the soonest sign of change, the date should be changed (hopefully
bringing it nearer if things are going well, but more likely pushing it back
due to problems).
