The build system and regression tests ensure our code works everyday
(every hour actually!).  Rather than inch forward across the whole of
JSE simultaneously it is helpful to identify subgoals along the way.

I've no idea, why did you mention it?

Six weeks from now is May 16th.  I chose the interval rather than the
date, since we need long enough to contain some meaty tasks, but not too
long to loose sight of what we are doing.  It also happens to be the
start of JavaOne -- but that's a coincidence.
