I am far from being the only person to whom this was less than clear. I
also know that when I discussed this with one or two members of the core
team *they* were not clear about it either.
Maybe I missed something in an email somewhere ...
In any case, I think a target date should be set at the beginning of a
dev cycle and a hard date should be set closer to the end of the cycle.
Trying to adhere rigidly to a date set nine or twelve months previously
doesn't strike me as good practice.
