I have filled out the missing pieces in the 0.90 development cycle [1]. 
I want to highlight some important dates:

* 16th August: Feature Freeze

* 29th September: The final, new stable release

* 27th October: Bug fix release

The Sugar 0.89.x schedule is based on the GNOME 2.31.x development cycle 
[2]. One reason is that Sugar as based on the GNOME stack. Another 
reason is that GNOME makes sure that their release will be able to be 
shipped by the major distributions. The dates of the release are made 
accordingly to the GNOME schedule.

As there is not much time left for 0.90 we will focus on stabilizing and 
landing the features that were left over from the last release. As well 
as landing all the patches that are currently pending. New Features are 
handled by the Feature process, as it has been the case in the past [3]. 
Make sure to read the policy what needs to be done in order that your 
feature can be accepted [4]. It is a sanity check, so don't be too 
worried. It is there to help the submitter and maintainer in order to 
get input from the community and the release manager to track features 
and their status. The actual code gets reviewed by the module maintainer.

If there are any questions, about the policy or the schedule, please ask.
