Yes, you are right here, we have to do stronger timelines for the next
releases, but sorry I ask for one more week for 0.9.0 because it is so

I just ask for one week, not much more...

Come on, Rémi, your work is amazingly useful to us. You have worked on
stuffs that noone else wants to take care because stupid coders like me
don't understand those... :)

You are right that we need stronger timelines, however, we have to
converge all the work we did in 0.9.0 and it is a bit slower than
expected... Therefore I suggest a tagging one week later than scheduled
and take one week to work on the binaries...

We would annunce the released binaries during the last week on august.

This is just a proposal.
