Heh, probably not. The release plan for 4.8 presupposed that a bunch of
other things would get done (like the git migration) in a reasonable
amount of time.
I think we still plan to move to the new release process, but it's just
been delayed a bit. I'm planning on starting the git migration this
weekend (I'll send a separate email about that soon), so that'll be a
big step in the right direction. We should have Transifex set up soon
after (thanks to Jannis), and probably other stuff I've forgotten, and
then maybe we can set a decent schedule for 4.8.
At least, that's how I see it... others might be expecting differently ^_^.
