"The weekend of February 14th is going to be our tentative
target for release. We've checked with all the involved teams
(which are many!), and the date works for all of them.
"The intention is only to lift that date if something really
critical pops up that is not possible to handle as an errata, or if
we end up technically unable to release that weekend (eg., a needed
machine crashes). Every other fix that doesn't make it in time will
be r1 material. Please be sure to contact us about the RC fixes
you'd like included in the point release!"
