Update Cadence:

 - Content
  - Critical/High bug fixes that are not leading to data loss or loss of major functionality
  - UX fixes
  - Prioritized feature backlog

I'm a bit confused here with the feature backlog. Currently we're landing fixes in Utopic, and then if appropriate syncing those fixes over to the RTM branch to get into the production images. But features couldn't land in Utopic because it's in feature freeze. Do you expect that there'll be features that only land in RTM? Or is this more for when V¹ opens and features could land there and be synced over to RTM?
