It would be nice to have an image which represents our 6 months cycle, like a timeline. It would show on different colors ours phases, since from beggining (calendar building) until the end, which is the release itself.
I don't know the phases on six months cycle. So if you could provide something that shows the phases, it would be easier to look into this.
answer If you look at http://live.gnome.org/TwoPointTwentythree, you'll see the calendar for the 2.24 release. The phases could be:
- - hacking - String Change Announcement Period - api/abi freeze - and so on
