That's awesome, and we were looking forward to it.
Regarding schedule, it's not clear to me when we *have to* propose the branches.

For example in TripleO, we've noticed that our work on upgrades
usually happens more at the end of a cycle so we would like to wait
for the last time before branching our repos.
Example with Ocata, when would you suggest to start branching?
