I was hoping that we can discuss that during the conference, but maybe
that's too late.

I would like to ship 3.6.0 in January 2011 if there are no objections.
But this is just my personal point of view.

July does not make any sense. So we should skip one major release date
and schedule 3.6 jor the beginning of 2011.

We need to decide whether we change the release cycle to 12 month, but
I would really like to talk to Team about that first.

Hope that helps!
