I suppose there are three possibilities:

a) we make a release in early feb using editorial resources owed from last year, and implementing decisions
   effectively made earlier this year (viz genetic stuff), and then move to a May and November release
   (if we can afford two meetings)

b) we build up from now to a giant release in May

c) we reject the premise of your message, and continue
  to release 3 times a year with whatever is available,
  using whatever time and resources anyone wants to commit

if we could get anywhere with the current large set of requests which are between 50% and 90%
discussed, I suggest that it would be well worth while doing a february release under the Old
Dispensation, otherwise the burden will become too great.
