Yes, I realize this, and it's a little unfortunate, but hopefully
enough folks are around and the process long enough that it will work
If this turns out to be a real problem, we could consider slipping
future releases a little further into the year, but I'd really like to
avoid that and stick to the current 6-month cycle if possible.
