Hi Maintainers,

We are attempting to do a bit broader release schedule this time around
and this was announced in the last maintainers meeting. The schedule can
be see here [1] (possibly needs to be bookmarked).

The intention is to keep things tighter as this is a major Gluster release.

Request all to keep this in check to make it happen!
