Looking at our existing schedule, I think it is unlikely we will even
make a June 2010 release date for 8.5.  Let me explain why --- here is
the ideal schedule:

	Jan 15 start commitfest
	Feb 15 stop commitfest
	Apr  1 start beta
	Jun  1 release release candidate (RC)
	Jun 20 release 8.5

You can't move from commitfest to beta until all _known_ bugs are
fixed/addressed, and you can't move from beta to RC using the same

Of course we rarely have an ideal schedule --- we should expect
unexpected problems.  Now, I know people are going to say I am being
over pessimistic, but history will bear out my analysis.  I think we
should anticipate a July or August release of 8.5.
