Thank you!  And thanks to all the people involved. :-)

For what it is worth, the anniversary dates seems good targets as
release dates:

 - April, 18th (init commit) 
 - November, 23rd (first announce)

Do you plan to keep a Release Bug open with all the blocking bugs?  Does
it help?  If yes, does it make sense to start now to add some or only ~2
months before the target?

I remember a plot sent to guix-maintaainers about the number of grafts,
the core-updates merges and the release dates.  I am not sure it is
really interesting and it is worth to resend it, or maybe dumping the
Cuirass database to investigate a bit more.  Well, my point is the
core-updates merges and the release dates should be synchronized; say
target the core-updates for end of September, then the release for
November.  To me, this synchronisation makes senses because it
constraints the ~6months core-updates cycle and in the same time, the 2
releases per year.
