Just saw that there's already 184 tickets currently in
Tor-0.2.4.x-final. Wow.

So maybe instead: We can all try to tag things in Tor-0.2.4.x-final with
the right deadline tag, and then you can just do announcement emails?
And/or the project coordinator can handle pinging people/tickets at the
deadline points?
