Fedora releases typically have a 6 month development cycle.  We target

month's time is quite a lot to shrink.  Especially because of the
significance of F11.

FWIW, the past slippage of a month that we had, we made up the month
over the course of 2 release cycles to help reduce the impact to each
individual release.

I think the schedules and processes have matured a lot from the release before Fedora 8 and I'm not sure they are as valid for comparison now.

* Fedora 8 slipped overall by approximately one week. We still set a ~5/1 GA date for F9
* Fedora 9 slipped two weeks total.  We set an F10 GA date of ~ Oct 31.
* So far Fedora 10 has slipped by four weeks. After the infrastructure incident we slipped by three weeks. Another week was added when we missed the beta freeze.
