As we are pushing for 4.7 going out the door, Mark Shuttleworth is proposing
a delay for the upcoming Ubuntu Dapper.

As you know, Ubuntu is committed to a 6 month release cycle, and the
release numbers are of yy.mm format (e.g. 05.10 for Breezy Badger).

Now, there is a proposal to delay that by 1.5 months for testing, certification,
localisation and "polish".

The way I read it  is: what is more important: Quality or Punctuality?
