I would like to discuss a timetable towards a python3 release (1.2 or 2.0).  I'll throw this out there, and am happy to make modifications according to feedback

Aug 20th : feature freeze and branch.  bugfixes only going forward from this point

Sept 15th: rc1

Oct 7th: rc2

Oct 15th release

I know we have lots of open and interesting pull requests to get in, and so if we need to push these times back to get them in that is fine.  Just wanted to put something out there to see if this timeline seems plausible to people.
