True. There's really just this:

Interaction with user namespaces
For a discussion of the interaction of capabilities and user
namespaces, see user_namespaces(7).

No deadlines as such. The last couple of years, as a sort of
experiment, I've fallen into the same release cycle as the kernel
(typically making a release in the week or so after the kernel release),
and I am even using a similar numbering scheme. Ideally, the man-pages
patch would go into the release that corresponds to the kernel release
that makes the change.
