If it takes six months to fix all the bugs, then yes; but
my assumption was that the pre-DVD freeze would start (say)
one month before intended production, and that month would
be used for bug fixing.  If less time is needed, great; and
if more time is needed, so be it :  better a bug-free DVD
than a buggy one followed by a need for an immediate network
update, particularly for those with poor or no network connectivity.
