I think the PR activities here are not quite as rigid as the last
bullet indicates.  We need to give better advance notice than a few
days, but at the same time, we also have the ability to apply the
brakes on, say, the Thursday or Friday before release.  Of course,
everyone would rather not have to do that, but the option is there if
needed.  The goal of having more certainty and accuracy in hitting our
release date is a noble one but PR shouldn't interfere with sanity.
