sorry, i probably still don't understand the plans of the team:
- 1.5.0 in autumn 2013 (autumn finishing on the december 20th and
deadlines are known to be met at the end of the planned period...)
- 1.6.0 still in 2013 or early 2014.
does it make sense to target a rock solid 1.5.0 as you seem to plan?
shouldn't be better to plan a 1.5.0 as soon as possible (as a
"technology preview") and then roll out a 1.5.x development release once
a month in 2013 with the goal to get to 1.6 at the end of the year?
setting sensible goals for each 1.5.x could help getting things done.
from the past experience, setting huge goals for a date far away in the
future is the best way to get it slip even further...
