Hmmm, why in August?

We will have 5.2.0 to be released in the first week of August[1], so:

- lots of folks in all parts of the project will be in firefighting mode, not
  being able to mentor or onboard newcomers
- we will have enough stories to tell from the release itself (hopefully)

Wouldnt it make sense to make that November (6 months shifted from May -- aka
roughly the same time in the release cycle as May)?

Also May to August is just 2 months pause, so we might see some fatigue from
interested parties there. Esp. if we do it again every 3 months. After all, May
was explicitly selected because it is an otherwise rather slow month -- August
(and February) are exactly the opposite.

Just wondering ...
