Background

Proposal:

Set the target release date for 11.2 to October 28, 2016.

The release will be "timeboxed", meaning we are releasing based on schedule, not scope. Only a true showstopper bug may cause us to revise our target date.


Rationale:

Timeboxing seemed to work well for the 11.1 maintenance release and institutions have indicated that getting a maintenance release by the end of October will allow them to take advantage of the fixes in 11.2 for the Winter term (U.S.A., approximately in January 2017).


Voting:

Voting is carried out by the PMC but comments from non-PMC folk are very welcomed.

*Voting will close on midnight on Wednesday, September 7, 2016*.

As a reminder, this is a public, on-list vote with a "+1" signifying approval. Per governance documents, a -1 vote must be accompanied by a detailed explanation. A single -1 vote based on a material objection will block action. However, -1 blocking votes can be overridden by a 2/3 majority roll call vote of active PMC members.[1]
