I created as a release

(The script doesn't set the week numbers correctly for the GUADEC item,
I'll fix that manually once we have a schedule agreed on. Meh, we
haven't announced the new proposals period yet.)

I reduced the number of releases (no .6 and no .92) so we'd create
releases only every four weeks, then 2-3-1 (also keeping in mind to not
have releases around GUADEC when people travel).
Would like to hear if that's good or not when it comes to getting
feedback and testing from distros packaging our unstable releases.

I also decoupled The Freeze from having a release at the same time, with
the naive idea that this would leave us a week to sort out API
incompatibilites. This hasn't happened lately though so might be rather

And should 3.14.1 be one week later, because Oct 13 is too close to
Columbus Day and Boston/Montreal summit?

So: Good? Bad? "andre, put one more release in there and have The Freeze
together with a release"?

I would like a little time for the QA team to contact extension
developers to update their extensiosn for 3.14 a week before release.
 We have not agreed yet in QA whether we are going to do that
specifically, but it's one of the things that I want QA to do as part
of making the release work well for those who try it.

I'm hoping most of this is temporary after gnome-shell code base
stabilizes ehough that there isn't so many extensions that break.
Still they need to be given a chance and also we should update our
agreement with extension writers that it is okay to modify code prioir
to a release to make it work for the next release.
