The June 1st date was first mentioned on list in mid-March (to me), but
wasn't generally announced until May under a specific heading. If it was
set in January, I was never knowingly party to that info.
Major-architectural changes notwithstanding, xlog archiving was
originally completed in late April, having started in Feb.
A published schedule might have helped all of us to understand the
impact of an extra weeks discussion etc..
Personally, I feel I had good notice, but that doesn't mean it was
possible for me to finish by that time...
