We could push as in, features are no longer targeted for a given release
(as in the wiki page does not mention the Fedora release in which this
feature will appear). They are developed on their way (allowing long
time planning) and when ready merge into rawhide right after the
branching, this would be when a feature is tagged for the release.
Benefits, feature can be tested in rawhide right after the branching,
more time to discuss the feature as they are not proposed for a given
release but in a generic way and hopefully enough time between it is
merged into rawhide and the branching for the next release to be able to
revert the feature if desired.
