I've put up my proposal for releases in August
same format as currently, tagging on first Saturday, release on
following Thursday, makes 5.13 on Thu August 6th.
delayed a month to not clash with Akademy and allow Baloo to move to
new format incompatible with kdelibs4 format
beta tagged on Thursday 6th (same day as kf5.13 release)
final tagged two weeks later on thursday 20th
Simplified release cycle, beta 3 weeks before release, rc 2 weeks
before, tagging 1 week before, all on Wednesdays.
release on August 19th

Any comments welcome (preferably on release-team@)
