Some rather trivial remarks:

In England, June is Summer, not Spring. In Australia, Winter, I would think.

I am rather surprised by the version numbering changes - 5.7 and 6.1 are major changes - either one would have been a more obvious candidate for 6.0.

Wikipedia on Spring: "In all technicality, spring begins on the Vernal Equinox (March 20th or 21st in the Northern Hemisphere and September 22 or 23 in the Southern) and lasts till Summer Solstice (June 21st or 22nd in the Northern Hemisphere and December 21st or December 22nd in the Southern)".
Anyone who has lived in Australia knows that people there are used to and tolerant of the mirrored semantics for Spring and Summer.

That is a very odd "technicality". The summer solstice is mid-summer day, astronomically. What other "technicality" is there? Anyway, I am well off topic here. To get back on-topic - it is nice to see a clear timetable for the way ahead.
