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 ^_^.
