(Roughly) 2 week delay for MediaWiki 1.21wmf7
Hi everyone,

Because a number of people are planning to take time off for the
holidays, I'd like to postpone the regular release cycle for 2 weeks,
with 1.21wmf7 being a slightly longer window than normal, and 1.21wmf8
stretched out a little bit as well to accommodate MLK day (January
21).

Here's what things will look like in the revised schedule:

1.21wmf7:
* Wednesday, January 2 (test, test2, mediawiki.org, wikidata.org)
* Monday, January 7 (non-Wikipedia)
* Wednesday, January 9 (English Wikipedia)
* Monday, January 11 (other Wikipedia)

1.21wmf8
* Wednesday, January 16 (test, test2, mediawiki.org, wikidata.org)
* Wednesday, January 23 (non-Wikipedia)
* Monday, January 28 (English Wikipedia)
* Wednesday, January 30 (other Wikipedia)

We would then resume the normal cadence Monday, February 4 when we
deploy 1.21wmf9.

The nice thing about doing things this way is that the cycle stretches
out the time that 1.21wmf7 and 1.21wmf8 sit on test2 over the normal
cycle, which gives us a little more time to notice problems.

Any objections? I don't think there's room to keep the standard
cycle, but there's plenty of tweaking around the edges we can make.

Rob

This looks very well for us. Just one thing: Phase 4 of 1.21wmf7 should
probably be Monday, January 14, not January 11.

Cheers,
Denny
