[Xen-devel] Xen 4.7 Development Update

I accidentally deleted my old script, so I take the chance to change
the tracking email a bit. Now this email only tracks big items for
xen.git tree. Please reply for items you woulk like to see in 4.7 so
that people have an idea what is going on and prioritise accordingly.

= Timeline =

We now adopt a fixed cut-off date scheme. We will release twice a
year. The upcoming 4.7 timeline are as followed:

* Last posting date: March 18, 2016
* Hard code freeze: April 1, 2016
* RC1: TBD
* Release: July 1, 2016

Note that we don't have freeze exception scheme anymore. All patches
that wish to go into 4.7 must be posted no later than the last posting
date. All patches posted after that date will be automatically queued
into next release.

RCs will be arranged immediately after freeze.
