Actually, CDT 8.5 was planned for September - which would be in line with the SR1 release. Releasing 8.5 in December would postpone it three months.
CDT switched to a 4 Month release cycle recently: http://dev.eclipse.org/mhonarc/lists/cdt-dev/msg26379.html
Hope this clarifies some things.

Not sure I understand this...
It looks like you are doing *more* releases in the year, and not less. In the "old world" there would have been 8.4.1 in September and 8.4.2 in February. You are now adding 8.5 in December.
Can I ask the rationale? As I provide an Eclipse+CDT+plugins release to my customers, it is going to make it real hard to keep up to date, with lots of additional integration testing as well as an extra release to consider..
Ping. Please get your feedback in by Friday so we can make a call on this one way or the other.
I'm back in Ottawa but on vacation for the rest of the week. But I didn't want this conversation to die without a conclusion, especially with Luna SR-1 so close.
Unless someone has something on master they really want to get into Luna SR-1, I propose the following schedule.
September - Luna SR-1. CDT 8.4.1 off of the 8.4 branch. Cherry pick any important fixes you have on master to the branch.
first half of December - CDT 8.5 from master. Just in time for the holiday season. We would make sure that Luna SR-1 users can upgrade to it.
February - Luna SR-2. CDT 8.5.1 fixes from the 8.5 branch.
I think the 6 month cycle would really help get quality features in each release. It also reduces the number of release reviews we need to do :).
