[Animesh>] While I had created and updated the 4.3 page with dates it was not explicitly
called out since I was expecting the to-be release manager to state that. We are already passed
the feature proposal date of 9/30, does anyone think that the feature proposal last day should
be extended to Friday 10/11 giving 72 hour notice. I prefer not to change and stick to the
original dates as below.

Feature freeze : 10/31
Code Freeze : 11/29
RC : 12/23 (This is close to Christmas, so either we pull in by couple of days, or make it
first week of Jan)
