Sounds like a project manager type should be put into place to organize
this information into a straight stream instead of 50 random mists of water

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
