Yeah, if we are lucky we can do RC1 in mid-August and still release
final in August, but that assumes everything is done by then, and that
we only need 1-2 RCs.  Early September looks more likely.  The good
thing is that we are deciding now and are continually seeing if we can
tighten the schedule.  (If we stop trying to tighten the schedule, we
get a lose schedule, which no one likes.)
