Yes, you are right about the schedule.
My comment was based in my perception (can be wrong)
of the work in the last weeks. Following the pull requests,
most of the work is related to web, only a few were related to bugs.

Part of the problem, like other said, is actually
we don't have images available to provide to people to help
with the test.
