I'm going to try and reign in the other thread [1] and bring it back here.

The request to discuss this in the nova meeting was discussed, log 
starts here [2].

For me personally, I'm OK with starting runways now, before the spec 
freeze, if we also agree to move the spec freeze out past milestone 1, 
so either milestone 2 or feature freeze (~milestone 3).

This is because we have far fewer people that actually review specs, and 
I personally don't want to have the expectation/pressure to be 
reviewing, at a high level anyway, both specs before the deadline along 
with runways at the same time.

Moving out the spec freeze also means that assuming runways works and 
we're good about flushing things through the queue, we can seed more 
blueprints based on specs we approve later.

Given we already have 33 approved but not yet completed blueprints, we 
have plenty of content to keep us busy with runways for the next couple 
of months.

If we start runways now and don't move out the spec freeze, I'm OK with 
that but I personally will probably be devoting more of my time to 
reviewing specs than stuff in the runways.
