[Live-demo] OSGeoLive to use OSGIS (5 Sept) as target date for OSGeoLive 6.0?

Following on from Angelos's question about OSGeoLive target date, and a 
comment from Suchith below re OSGIS, I'd like to float the idea of 
bringing our schedule forward so that we can have OSGeo-Live 6.0 DVDs 
ready for OSGIS, (the UK regional conference, that has been selected to 
host FOSS4G next year in 2013).

OSGIS is 2 weeks earlier than our prior target date, and would mean 
bringing our schedule forward by 2 weeks.
Ie: From today:
2 weeks to UAT
4 weeks to Final ISO (leaving only 2 weeks for UAT instead of the usual 
3 weeks)

This will be a tight deadline, and might result in some applications not 
being ready (and hence excluded).
I'm in favour of chasing this date, as I think it would be good to get 
the DVDs out to the OSGIS conference, but would like to hear from others 
on whether this is an achievable goal.

Current schedule (targeting mid Sept for foss4g 2012) is here:
