I agree. But there are those who must accomplish real work around the release. 
Having estimated dates is a valuable benefit in planning and I certainly 
appreciate them. However, I seem to be in the minority in realizing that they 
_are_ estimates and that Red Hat is in completely charge of when the thing is 

BTW, if it matters, a final release date for next year in mid-August would be 
great. Can I make this a feature request? 8)
