This is the golden image. It is the last coordinated release. After that 
we only deliver updates for components.

Each release in the cycle has it's release page with the relevant 
features and fixes for the specific release. After Feature Freeze we 
might wrap up what big changes/features went in, in the announcement.

Would be the sum of the releases in the cycle before the feature freeze.

dev.laptop.org should have bugs that are only relevant to the OLPC 
platform in the future. Currently, I guess there are still some bugs 
that other distributions would profit as well.

I take this as an invitation - and will try :)

Time left is short for this release. What we are currently working on 
can be seen in our development TODO list

That is why we set the feature freeze in mid January - that we have 6 
weeks left to stabilize. By January I hope to have the BugSquad [1] then 
in place to handle all the incoming bug reports from testing.

Sure :)
