I guess the others where trying to pass the burden of answering to Mo 
but she was busy at work.

This release cycle was a bit unusual, as we didn't have multiple design 
concepts and rounds, we also didn't have blog posts about them, so the 
visibility somehow decreased.
I don't think we need a feedback period, we need to get some graphics 
(concepts) as soon as possible to get feedback from the early stages. Is 
not useful if one week before the freeze we learn that everything is not 
good enough, we have to scrap it and restart.

For both of those questions I think the best thing is that after the 
Preview Release, when we do not have the pressure of the F11 graphics on 
us, stay down and talk about what we learned and how do we plan to work 
for F12, get back to 3 rounds and the competing concepts, try once more 
a single concept, link or not to the release name and so on.
