"Release date" means when we release to the public. You seem to be
talking about a "snapshot date," the purpose of which is to give
everyone on the project a cutoff date to be guaranteed that their
changes to the tree get into the official 2004.0 release. All arches
would snapshot on the 7th or later.

If we do official snaps on the 7th+, this would allow us to do
building/QA and release in late February, which to me seems like a
reasonable an non-rushed timeframe.

I think this would actually work well, if this is what you meant.
