Yes, quite a few things took longer then originally anticipated. The
feature freeze did already happen two weeks later then originally planned,
then it took quite some time to get the alpha and beta packages out. In
the end we had a week or two of delays on every stage of the release and
that added up.

This is something we'll need to discuss. The 5.1 plan was clearly too
optimistic. So we need to go through the problems we had with 5.1 to make
sure we don't repeat them if we want to have a chance to get 5.2 done in
