well, the reviews (incl their corresponding notes) will have to be  
submitted by saturday, and the authors will also be notified via  
trac.  that would give an additional weekend to react, well perhaps  
just sunday.  i agree that this is still leaving very little time to  
respond, but that was also the same with the original schedule we all  
agreed upon.  and besides, afaik all but one PLIPs have been reviewed  
with notes posted, so there was some additional time available.  and  
yes, in theory new issues could be brought up by reading the notes and  
thinking of something the first two reviewers have missed, but i think  
the chances here are pretty slim.  imho they're so slim, that adding  
another week before starting the merge doesn't justify them.

the 22nd is "just" the date of the alpha freeze, the first rc gets  
frozen on the 29th.  that should leave enough time to work things out,  
esp since i think it's fine to still put in minor (and very serious)  
fixes between the two.  plus like already said, it's the same as the  
original schedule (i.e. long-known ;)) except shifted two weeks.

i'm not sure, but i guess that's really wichert's call anyway.
