DSDP-TM is OK to deliver till noon EDT
Since it seems only the +2 tiers are affected... do we
_have to_ ensure everyone is on board?
Or would it be OK if some +2 tiers upload after noon EDT,
such that they are only visible
on the main download server in the beginning but not yet
mirrored? Or am I misunderstanding?

Just to clarify, has everyone
agreed to the plan to have all projects push their content to the servers at
Thursday noon EDT as the Nick suggested? So am I to assume that the
the synchronization between the server nodes will be frozen before noon
- what time? A confirmation from the Eclipse foundation would be
In the past,
making a release available without mirror replication has caused the servers
and webmasters to overheat so I'd like to avoid that.

If last year is any indication of how this year will go, trying to
all the promotes on Friday at the same time everyone
downloading the Fall Maintenance bits will be madness --
bandwidth, broken uploads, broken downloads, frustrated users,
Can we implement a Thursday cutoff for mirror synching like we did
June? That is, +2 projects will have their final bits on the server
noonish on Thu, so that there's 24hrs for mirror replication
the public release on Friday.
Are +2 projects ok with losing
a day from the schedule?
If so, we should also update the Winter
Maintenance schedule to do the same.
