That makes sense. Perhaps the current way it is worded could be
changed from "when FCz reaches test2" to something more along the
lines of "when developers need to spend more time concentrating on
improving the next release (usually once the second test release of
FCz is produced)". I think this would make people feel less like they
are "missing out" on FCz, and feel more as though this decision really
benefits them in the long run.
