    You set the deadline, you miss it. That’s what people call a delay.

    P.S. I actually don’t dislike Fedora release engineering style.
    Can you even call it a deadline with all honesty? Seems more like "this is an optimistic miminum date, we can't do it any faster than this". The only point of saying there's an expected release date is it allows you to be able to determine when people should stop making breaking changes/any changes.

        This is indeed correct. The dates are by design more fluid than a fixed release cycle. They aren't really deadlines and adjustments to the dates as and when needed based on the release criteria are part of the plan.

          Ok, even if we don’t call it “deadline”, but “schedule” (fedora call it this way itself), missing a schedule is still a delay.

            The dates are called preferred targets.

              That’s why delays are expected and are not a problem.
