There was one reply to that email so I'm not sure how you decide that 
was the voice of the Python community. :-)

Additionally your proposal was for a "release timer", which I took to 
mean some kind of countdown feature which I didn't think was a 
particularly good idea but I didn't really understand what you meant.

As it happens I'm in favour of embedding the calendar on the /dev page 
(which I think is more appropriate than the front page) - but let's see 
what other people think.

All the best,
