Does it make sense to ask the following questions?

Historically, how much do we tend to slip per release?  Disregarding
the month during F10 run up specifically during the infrastructure
rebuild.  Are we somewhat consistent with regard to slippage? Is there
an average slippage? The sample size is pretty small so I admit its
not a statically valid measure.   What's the most we've slipped in the
past, that is not the direct result of significant system downtime?

Accounting for historical slippage, were does F12 release land? Mid Nov?
