I dislike assigning work for others, but I found the two-week tempo
worked really, really well in the betas, and so if Karolin is OK with a
two or three week cycle, I would prefer to keep to that faster rather
that slower.  

Certainly the 9th won't offer any advantages over the 2nd for me in
terms of patch preparedness from the AD event, but may give our users
the chance to test the file server changes we make at/post SDC.
