The June release, where major version changes are allowed for plug-ins

that occur in the next year by the year they release in, but what they
update. And that could cause confusion.

Could we consider moving the big release date from June to January? We
already have slow-down period in the weeks before the big release, and we
could do that for Dec 15. The big release would be first Monday in January.

I think this would be really bad. First it will mean doing critical fixes and etc. (which happen no matter what) being done around Christmas with all the burden put on releng/PMC approvals and etc. Second, historically most changes go in M4-M6 which would happen to be summer period with many people on vacation making it even more disorganized.

-10000 on doing big release just after xmas.

The slow down period is there to actually catch blocker issues.
In summer there are people to actually do that - not so much around December/New year.
