I have written some documentation at
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/TimeBasedReleases which explains how our time-based
release process works, and why we have a freeze process.

We also have a documented process for requesting freeze exceptions here:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MOTU/Processes/UVF

To have a release schedule aligned with Kubuntu's would mean that feature
development concluded on 7th September, and that only important bug fixes
were being made at this time.  There is much more to the release process
than pushing in new packages before the final release date.
