    The detailed schedule has not yet been posted by the Release Team,
and any specific dates will be hard to determine until there is an
official announcement of the schedule.

    Broadly speaking, the archive is likely to open for autosync in
early May, and probably close in late June.  These are far from official
dates, but it's typically a week or two from release to archive open,
and usually 6-8 weeks between archive open and Debian Import Freeze.  If
the transition is not expected to complete by mid-June or so, it is
probably worth further coordination to ensure that any outstanding
changes can be addressed shortly after Debian Import Freeze.
