This page describes the reasons for delaying the release of the SDK two weeks after the release of each MeeGo OS.
The SDK uses images from the MeeGo OS images. After MeeGo OS images are released the following must be done:
Sometimes the MeeGo OS changes right up until release. Even minor changes require re-validation of the SDK. Due to the above tasks, it is safer for the release date for the SDK to be a couple of weeks after the release of the MeeGo OS image.
If the SDK were tested by the same OS team that tested the image and the SDK bugs were included in the showstoppers for release then the delay would be unnecessary. However, that is not the case currently.
