I wanted to put this into a actual calender to make it clear:

28 0.10rc1 released,
   open season on

 4 0.10 released open

11 open

18 0.11 prep chilled for 0.11rc1, trivial fixes only

25 0.11rc1 released opened

 2 0.11 released open

I think I'm happy with that release schedule. It worked pretty well this
time around. Though it might be a little compressed. I wonder if we
would be happier with a 2-month cycle. But then again, I think 1-week of
trivial fixes is probably better than a 2-week slush phase.
