OK, maybe we should just focus on what you are saying as putting
metadata into submissions cutoff on JUN 27 and then package those up for
another release.

If we are going for themes, we are going to need to put a CALL FOR ART
out into the world to really get support and give it at least a month.

If you think the roadmap should be edited, then please massage and move
things around. My personal goal is to make it obvious what we are
working on. I strongly think for this project we need to have TIME-BASED
releases of the art and system, as this project is not so much
feature-dependent, as submission dependent. Magazines are monthly for a
reason. If they surged with interest, then there would be periods of
overload and periods of dryness.
