A lot of us would have preferred a more timely release but think about this: the mod is being made by a team of volunteers. They're not being paid by Valve to make this mod and they're doing it out of love and admiration for Half-Life. And they don't have to follow a strict schedule like most game developers.
I'm glad that they finally set a date. I still remember how excited I was when they first announced the game (formerly known as Black Mesa: Source). I must admit that my excitement and interest for the game has dwindled over the past couple of years; however, the news of a mid-September release has rekindled my desire to play it. I actually held off from completing Half-Life just so I could play it with updated graphics.
