That is my opinion yes. 

I do understand that you'd like to have 18.12.3, but if we want to do the (.3) release in march and you need the package before March 2nd it seems it's a bit hard.

Does anyone here disagree with me and thinks we should move up the .3 release to say Feb 28 so it can go into Debian? 

That'd give us only 3 weeks of bugfixes (for all distros) instead of the typical 4.
