Viewing this from outside, 25 specs in a cycle already sounds like
planning to get a *lot* done... that's completing an average of one
Nova spec per week (even when averaged through the freeze weeks).
Maybe as a goal it's undershooting a bit, but it's still a very
impressive quantity to be able to consistently accomplish. Many
thanks and congratulations to all the folks who work so hard to make
this happen in Nova, cycle after cycle.
