What do you mean by 12 months? If someone adds finishes a feature by Monday, it 
will be in the April release. That's 3 months.

If they finish the feature on Friday, it'll be in the October/November release. 
That's the longest possible case and that's 9 or 10 months.

Now, reviewing features takes time. If you want it to get in the next release, 
start early.
