what's the distinction in nomenclature?

I liked the month between test releases better than 2 weeks. If only b/c
the installer(as you well know) will be less tested if there is less
time to sync test isos to do full reinstalls. And for a lot of people it
still takes about a day or 2 to get 3 isos.

And I think the installer+2.6+lvm/evms/etc will be more than enough pain
to iron out.

What's the motive to shorten up to end of March instead of Mid-April?
You'll start get bugs rolling in from the test releases for 2.6. I don't
think there will be any shortage. :)

and the dates you mention don't have humorous holiday jokes involved -
you've got to keep the important stuff in perspective! :)
