ITER have asked if we can produce a 3.14.12.2 release of Base in time for them 
to include it in their CODAC Core System version 3.0.  The dates below were 
picked with the ITER calendar in mind (and also fit in with the APS winter 
shutdown, which is convenient), although Franck hasn't yet responded to my 
email presenting these dates to him so he might want some changes.

      ...      Fix known bugs
  2011-Nov-14  Publish R3.14.12.2-pre1
      ...      Developer Testing
  2011-Nov-28  Publish R3.14.12.2-rc1
      ...      Community Testing
  2011-Dec-05  Publish additional -rc2 release if needed
  2011-Dec-12  Publish additional -rc3 release if needed
  2011-Dec-12  Earliest date to release 3.14.12.2
  2011-Dec-19  Latest date to release 3.14.12.2

This allows 3 weeks for us to fix known bugs before the -pre1 release, and 4 
or 5 weeks thereafter for testing, documentation updates and any additional 
fixes.  Note that the US Thanksgiving holiday falls towards the end of the 
Developer Testing period, so I hope we'll be able to concentrate most of our 
testing in the first week.

Since this is a patch release and we haven't included any significant new 
functionality in the 3.14 branch since 3.14.12, I don't foresee there being 
any major issues to deal with, although we do have a few bugs that should be 
fixed if possible before the release.

Core Developers: please check your calendars and respond with any questions or 
problems you'll have about meeting this timetable.

Thanks,

- Andrew
