Due to various travel arrangements and movement on the XO-1.75 front,
we have delayed the 11.2.0 release by a few weeks from its original
plan (which would have already had us in feature freeze).

We also have some stability concerns: the current development images
have various regressions (mostly on the Sugar and activities side)
compared to our previous stable release, and we may not be able to fix
all of these in time for the release. The release notes will be as
painfully true as needed in pointing out these issues. If the issues
remain serious then deployments may wish to simply consider it as a
preview for the release that follows, where we'll aim to improve on

The new schedule is:

Bug-fixes only (feature freeze): May 23rd
>From this point onwards, only bugfixes are accepted, and the rate of
change will be low

Regression fixes only: June 20th
>From this point onwards, only regression fixes are accepted and the
rate of change will hopefully be very low

Release: July 18th

Note that this gives about 1 week from today for any final feature
work to be landed.

Here is some further info about how the bug-fixing and
regression-fixing stages will work:

Testing is much appreciated.
