Thomas, it's great to hear that DPDK16.11 released just in time.
As prospect for 17.02, our intel validation team have some concern about the release date.
The official day off for Chinese Sprint Festival holiday will be from 27th Jan to 3th Feb.
Most of our members may ask for more days leave either before or after the official day off.
>From our previous experience, it will take 3~4 weeks to do the full function and performance test.
If the first candidate release in the middle of Jan, we can do first round of validation and raise issues to developers.
And after the holiday, we can keep on the validation process and finish in two weeks.
If release date is after Feb, it will be hard for us to cover all cases in release window.
