One possibility - and I'd say preferred - is to mention both options
in the Change proposal, with both versions schedules. Based on that,
the decision could be, that we would wait for 3.14, if Workstation
WG would say it's preferred option, or some development has to happen
upstream first for Fedora 21/Next.
Tentative schedule is - GA no earlier than in August. Realistic, expect
October. I understand it's hard to plan for both sides - FESCo and
developers. But expect the timeframe of August to October. In case the
scope of the release would be bigger, we can slip more. I'd just like
to avoid changing the GA date once a week without a real data. I'm
going to upload draft schedule how F21 would look like for different
Btw. Change proposal is not something set in stone, but it should
be living document (of course in cooperation with FESCo).
Just as a personal opinion, it makes all kinds of sense to me to just
sync F21 release with GNOME 3.14. I can't really see how releasing a
month before it comes out is a good idea at all. We don't have some kind
of urgent imperative to get F21 out as fast as possible. We have all
kinds of other changes planned for it; more time is only going to help
them get done better. Why not just say "OK, we'll ship F21 with GNOME
3.14 and schedule it no earlier than needed for that"?
