> It is good that RC1 on Jan.11th is a hard deadline. We also need ensure that RC1 is a complete package with all features. If RC1 is out but missing some big features, then the test results on RC1 vs RC2 may have big difference. 
> So, could we ensure that RC1 is a complete feature package, if any feature missing RC1, then we may postpone the feature to 17.05? Does it make sense? 

Absolutely, yes.

> > 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.
> Yes, we must remind that mid-January is a hard deadline for RC1.
> Then the release will be in mid-February to make sure you have some time after the holidays.
