I'm not convinced that establishing release goals will and deadlines speed
the release process.  For example, a prominent release goal for sarge will
be debian-installer, since we cannot release without it.  Will telling the
d-i developers "you must be finished by <arbitrary date>" bring it to
completion faster?
