The context for this is what Justin wrote (earlier):

To point out a bit more that I missed just then:

When I mentioned "January 2007" at the bottom of my reply to Justin, it was
within the context of "Imagine we were doing a yearly cycle." I'll quote it
for you:

Thus: if we were releasing at a yearly interval, and v1.3 was released in
January 2006, then v1.4 will (would) be released in January 2007. But we
aren't (yet) proposing such a slow schedule, so this is totally not supporting
Justin's sentence (quoted at the top).
