I have not heard myself the concerns about the May releases, so I
don't know how much of it a problem it is to move releases more
officially to May. If anyone has objections or concerns, let me know.

I think this is also something to align with other events and the
attendees. I personally do not mind either one. If I see a concern, I
will be sure to raise it with PTS organizers.
