The usual recommendation is to submit early and often.
"softfreeze" means "any new feature to go in must already
be in a pull request on the list by this date", but big
features hitting the list late in the cycle are not fun to
deal with and best avoided. Also, don't feel you need to hold
on to the thing until all 50-odd patches are ready to submit;
if you can break it up into smaller patchsets that's easier
to deal with.

We do 3 releases a year, generally in approximately April, August
and December. So 3.1 will be early December.
