Ok then I will adjust the timeline to:

* if you have any outstanding features or api extensions (no breakages
please) that are not yet patched / backported into the 1.8 branch
pleased do so as before 31 March 23h59 GMT 2012 to make sure your
features make it into the release.
* string freeze will take effect from 7 April 23h59 GMT2012 after
which point only bug fixes
will be accepted in the 1.8 branch.
* I will put out the RC 8 April 23h59 GMT2012p, and we will allow
translation contributions and bug fixes to continue until the point
where we decide we are going to put out 1.8 final

Ill send out a new notice so the above information does not get lost
in this thread.
