[1.5 days off-line and a lot to catch up with ;-) ]

FWIW: while I agree with Wichert in principle I also do
think his proposed schedule is somewhat tight given Christmas.

So I would be fine with adding 1 or even 2 weeks to his proposed
schedule (not more!) but I could also live with his original
proposal. Though I agree with Martin that we might loose those
contributions that get only serious consideration once a deadline
is in sight but OTOH I consider that a non-issue if we aim for
shorter release cycles in general. Maybe we could even indicate
an explicit time line for 3.2 right away as well?
