Kubernetes 1.19 Delayed as COVID-19 slows cloud native development efforts

This is an alternative pre-KubeCon release schedule (compared to #1058).

  • Move Enhancements Freeze to week 6 (was week 4)

  • Move Code Freeze to week 11 (was week 9)

    Deviation from SIG Release meeting:
    We give an extra week in the dev cycle to shorten Code Freeze to 6 weeks.
    Several comments on the previous proposal said that Code Freeze was too long.

  • RCs get released on a biweekly cadence (week 11, 13, 15)

  • Move Cherry Pick Deadline to week 16 (was week 11)

  • Move 1.19.0 release date to week 17 (was week 12)
