No, we decided for July and announced that everywhere. The objections should have raised during that discussion. If you were on vacation, bad luck this time ;-)

That does not mean we can not change anything in the future anymore. When we make the schedule for 4.2, we can shift two months /if/ there is concensus on that idea.

I do not see an urgent reason to change the schedule for 4.1.... And, just for the record, I don't like the idea of making sure 4.1 slips two months to get to that schedule.
