In this new model, were *should* these deadlines fit? Is it reasonable
to put the Software String Freeze the day of the branch (2017-08-16)
and the Translation Deadline at the Beta Freeze (2017-09-05), or is
that too late? What about putting the Software String Freeze at branch,
and Translation Deadline just two weeks later at Bodhi Activation
Coming over this bit late :(
First of all 4month release cycle is very impressive. 👍
As Jan Kurik mentioned, we have remained very flexible for these milestone
in Fedora but these are important milestone and make sure Fedora provide
better localization experience.
I think the present allocated dates look good for String Freeze (
2017-08-01) . 
It will be good to have around 4 weeks gap between String Freeze and
Translation deadlines. So having Translation deadline with " Bodhi
activation point" make sense.
Proposing *Translation Deadline ( 2017-08-29)*, Its important to have
Translation Deadline prior Beta Freeze, so one can test translation status
in Beta release itself.
