> November 20: 4.12 Beta 3 tagging
> November 27: 4.12 Release Candidate tagging
> November 28: 4.11.4 tagging
> December 11: 4.12 tagging
> January 2: 4.11.5 tagging

Sorry, I may not be very into position, but I have a question: Why do
release team wants to keep releasing 4.11.5 on January 2014 when 4.12 is
out on, according to release schedule, Dec. 18 2013?
