I would expect that when more developers start to become comfortable with 
distributed srm systems (like git) this starts to be easier and we can 
avoid such problems.
Therefor I think we should let the progress of people pushing their stuff 
into repos, as they want, drive the strictness of our release schedule. And 
vice versa.

In other words; let people get comfortable with the techniques and 
technology to enable this much easier at a similar pace as we move to more 
strict time-based releases.
