Excellent, thank you Misty!

The release would ideally land 1 month from the 1.1.6 release, so Oct 5 is
our target date. This is a loose target, but a starting point. A release
candidate VOTE thread is posted for 7 days. We're pretty far into the 1.1.x
line, so probably the first or second RC will pass. Thus, working backwards
and rounding to the nearest work week, I would aim for having an RC
available to the community on Sept 26th. My preference is to have a weekend
land near the end of the voting period so that non-9-5 volunteers can be
made aware of the VOTE and make time to take a look.

Do let me know if you have any questions, I should be available to answer
them through this weekend. Otherwise, you're in good hands with the other
folks who have and will take the time to respond on this thread.

Thanks,
Nick
