On the one hand the traffic is light, so the impact to most developers will be quite low; on the other, it is a holiday period, so getting the right key folk to help might be difficult. I won't object strongly if others feel that slipping a few days (but not weeks) would make things significantly easier.
The timetable looks entirely reasonable to me.
I have regenerated my primary version this week, and it's up at https://git.linaro.org/people/maxim-kuvyrkov/gcc-pretty.git/ . So far I have received only minor issue reports about it, and all known problems have been fixed. I could use a bit more scrutiny :-).
