No. Announcing the schedule on the dot without giving the community an 
opportunity to comment before would be pretty bad style for my taste.

Of course the schedule might change later, because we realize over time that 
some things need more time than expected etc., but it really shouldn't change 
because you forgot to ask the people whose software you will release before 
announcing the schedule.

What's the problem with waiting with the announcement until we know what the 
reaction from the community is and we were able to incorporate feedback.
