I welcome this, as I always thought June 1 was too soon. However, I 
think that the process by which the date was eventually arrived at was 
unfortunate.

I would modestly suggest that there should be a minimum period of notice 
of a feature freeze - 6 weeks or 2 months seems about right to me, given 
the development cycle we seem to have, and the fact that many of the 
critical things people are working on are quite large.

(I'd also like to see someone who would get regular progress reports 
from people who have undertaken to work on large/critical items, so that 
we don't get into a position of thinking they will make a cutoff date 
and then finding out late in the piece that they will not, but maybe 
that's a discussion for another day).

cheers
