Is this fixed or relaxed timeline? :-) I mean, are those steps going to happen
as they're defined or they can slip by some days/weeks/months?

Looking at the recent past, and I think, that we should learn from that
experience, it would be nice to define who/what can delay this proposed
timeline, release blockers so to speak. 

Thinking about it, just this two points came to my mind:

 - unfixed security issues we're aware of
 - unfixed bug which could lead to:

   * bricked device
   * preventing access to the device over SSH or LuCI

   Those issues needs to be properly reported at respective bug tracking
   system and confirmed/reproducible by at least one more person.
