We also need to have a shared understanding that the schedule is there
to be helpful to teams in cross-coordinating.  Going over the schedule
is an open process and it's also iterative.  We have a chance to keep
improving it with each release so it's as helpful as possible.  The
schedule shouldn't be seen as a blocker for making critical
improvements.  (I'm sure that Máirín wasn't looking to put a ton of
extra hours in over a weekend, although I know it will be appreciated
by many in the long run.)

As we make the schedule for the F13 cycle we could introduce items to
proactively get people to do constructive cross-checks on things like
the default background earlier, so we aren't having to correct issues
so late in the process.  The schedule process for Fedora 13 will be
run openly on the list as previously, so I hope interested people will
take advantage of the opportunity to participate when it comes around
