[mono-packagers] FYI: Ubuntu 9.04 Release Schedule

The release schedule for the next version of Ubuntu Linux (Ubuntu 9.04,
the Jaunty Jackalope) has been published, at

The important dates to look at where things like Mono are concerned is
the FeatureFreeze, on the week of Feb 19th - after that date, it becomes
much harder to convince anyone that an update to a major software stack
isn't a terrible idea, and after BetaFreeze (week of March 19th) it's
essentially impossible.

Comparing against dates shown on http://mono-project.com/Roadmap this
therefore means that Ubuntu 9.04 will ship with Mono 2.2(.x). And
whichever releases for matching software stack items (e.g. Moonlight,
Monodevelop) are out by FeatureFreeze. The versions included will need
to be supported by the Ubuntu people until October 2010. The next
release of Ubuntu after 9.04 will be in October 2009, with a
FeatureFreeze date of around the end of August.
