Setting a 1.7 branch goal

I've been visiting with a number of users and other interested parties about the future of Subversion, but one of the things I'm constantly hearing is "when will 1.7 be released?" It'd be nice to be able to address that. :)

1.7 will be an important release, but it feels as if we've been stalling a bit lately. I'm excited to see Mike, Julian and other getting involved, and I think the work we've left to do is well-scoped (if not well understood by everybody yet).

In the past, we've been hesitant to commit to a specific date, but I think making such a commitment to ourselves would be both useful and motivating. To kick things off, I propose the following:
* We shoot for a mid-May branch date, say May 15.
* We can use the June Berlin hack-a-thon to do a final push for any bugs which have popped up during the RC phase (or a push toward an RC if something postpones the branch date).
* A final release happens sometime mid-summer

I'd be very happy if this process were to accelerate, but I think as things look right now, the above looks reasonable.

Thoughts?
