I suspect there is little we can do for this cycle. For subsequent
ones having some agreement within the release teams would
obviously be a start. However, there's going to be a limit
as to how much we can stagger the releases, there's only
so many weeks in the year. Perhaps a good start would
be to try and ensure that final releases are at least two weeks
apart in the next cycle. The final releases cause the most
mirror stress I assume.
