Next year's Akademy is one month earlier than this year's. This year, it 
worked rather nicely, being able to present 4.1 as done deal during Akademy 
and hacking away on the future.

Next year, we'll clash. Potential problems:

- release (or release preps) during Akademy (while Akademy is very busy for 
  lots involved with the release team)
- trunk in freeze (well, depending on our plans ;-)) during Akademy (while 
  such meetings usually destabilize the codebase)
- The wider community is closer to what developers run, making many PR things 
  much easier

So gradually shifting the release backward would allow us for the same nice 
timing as we had this year.

On another note, it's rather cool we see this kind of issues nearly a year in 
advance already. Yay for plannability.
