[openssl-project] 1.1.1 Release timetable

The original wording has unknown scope - the same issue applies - we could
tag everything with 1.1.1 relevance and that would mean a whole pile of
Without criteria to set what is in or out of the release we wouldn't be
consistent in the approach - i.e. we could argue every issue either in or
out based on individual criteria (assuming it applies to the code base and
isn't something already fixed).

I think we can have an objective timeline - but it depends entirely on
getting through the classification of issues for in/out of the release -
and that needs to be made clear - and that sort of distinction I think
pretty much everyone will ignore.
If we publish a target set of dates people should have some expectation we
are aiming at those dates - and without a review of the issues, the current
criteria (to me at least) doesn't make sense as we have a large unknown
scope sitting in the middle of it.

If we are planning to include all issues relevant (i.e. potentially all
issues that actually apply to the code base in question) in the 1.1.1
release then we need to scope that first.
