I'll suggest that instead of a timeline, which would be a source of
pressure like you said, a weekly progress update would be just fine.
Similar to what Karanbir, IIANW, has done on his twitter/blog
recently. Maybe something like

"CentOS 5.4 Progress: Completed 2/7 Stages.
Stage 3 estimated 5% completed.
No progress expected for next two weeks due to XYZ convention"

The main thing is actually the VISIBILITY part. Putting it on CentOS
frontpage would cut down a lot of the unnecessary "when/where"
questions and leave the developers in peace :)
