Jesse got in touch with me on IRC earlier this week.  I've been
digesting some feedback since.  The changes Jesse and I agreed to during
the F11 cycle are present in the schedule as it stands now.  These
include defined compose dates.  In order to increase the likelihood that
we'll hit those dates ... we've added blocker bug days.  

These are welcome additions.

I'd also welcome getting all interested parties in one "virtual room" so
we can all sign-off and move forward.
