In the scope of proposal 3, we could move the API/ABI freeze from week
21 to week 20 or 22. However, I still think we should try to associate
all freezes with specific releases (expect for the hard code one) as
much as we can. It's easier for maintainers to keep track of the
freezes this way. I don't think they keep looking at the calendar very
often. Maybe they (we?) should. :-P

What do the others think?

Well, so far we're about to agree on a schedule proposal with the
release still in September. I don't think this will change much.
