Let's work together on this and build the docs schedule into the master 
schedule with hard dependencies on some of the other tasks.  By laying 
down some of the different task durations and dependencies we can better 
educate everyone else why it matters that we hold to certain dates. 
Please ping me on IRC tomorrow.

Also, please come to the FESCo meeting tomorrow (1 PM EST) on 
#fedora-meeting where we are going to talk about what needs fixing in 
the feature process--particularly if you need better quality content 
about the features.
