then only focus on fixing bugs and polishing things to make a solid coming
release.

- After a regular procedure-following release (made on Wednesdays), the
feature window remains closed until the following Monday in case of special
actions or patch releases etc.

If a future release date happens to end up on a "bad date", like in the middle
of common public holidays or when the lead release manager is away traveling,
the release date can be moved forwards or backwards a full week. This is then
advertised well in advance.

Coming dates
------------

Based on the description above, here are some planned release dates (at the
time of this writing):

- January 8, 2020
- March 4, 2020
- March 4, 2020 (7.69.0)
