Given that Fesco aggreed upon and thinks releasing F19 with shorter 
cycle is a great idea while I along with others in the community are on 
the opposite side and think we need longer release cycle.

Our package collection has been growing larger over the years not 
shorter which to me requires more time and resources to manage thus we 
longer release cycle not shorter one.

Based on our sad state in F18 I think we should just cut our losses and 
"restart" the release cycle for F18  and use the release cycle Fesco 
agreed upon for F19 as in F18 becomes an end-of-May release with an 
end-of-February branch date.
