Please don't consider this :)

No matter whether it's a lack of knowledge or disbelieving in the etch release 
plan (a la "it's scheduled for december so it will become march anyway..."), 
IMO this contributes a lot to the problems of releasing in time.

So I will quote the release plan posted by Steve Langasek on d-d-a two month 
ago. And as I havent seen an update to this, I assume it's still valid and 
_doable_.

This is the timeline that we think will get us there:

N-117  = Mon 30 Jul 06: freeze essential toolchain, kernels
N-110  = Mon  7 Aug 06: freeze base, non-essential toolchain (including
                        e.g. cdbs)
N-105  = Mon 14 Aug 06: d-i RC [directly after base freeze]
N-45   = Wed 18 Oct 06: general freeze [about 2 months after base
                        freeze, d-i RC]
N      = Mon  4 Dec 06: release [1.5 months for the general freeze]

We believe that one key to meeting these deadlines is letting
maintainers know about them well in advance so that they can plan
accordingly, so -- here we are.

If you don't believe your goals are reachable, you won't reach them. (Because 
then you won't work on reaching them.) Of course those goals also have to be 
reachable, but I have seen no indication they aren't.
