Why 20th? My understanding is that it's with the vernal equinox, which is tomorrow.

It would depend on which definition you use. The astronomical, meteorological or phenological definition. I prefer the phenological. :wink:

According to the astronomical definition, spring begins on the Vernal Equinox (usually March 20 in the Northern Hemisphere, and September 22 in the Southern Hemisphere), and lasts until the summer solstice (usually June 21 in the Northern Hemisphere and December 21 in the Southern Hemisphere). In 2009, spring fell on March 20th in the Northern Hemisphere. According to this definition, therefore, the day called Midsummer's Day in some traditions is the first day of Summer.

Meteorologists generally define the beginning of spring as March 21 in the Northern Hemisphere and September 21 in the Southern Hemisphere.[citation needed] According to the Celtic tradition, which is based solely on daylight and the strength of the noon sun, spring begins in early February (near Imbolc or Candlemas) and continues until early May (Beltane). Unlike the other three seasons, people in relatively cool climates are likely to use the astronomical definition for the beginning of spring in popular jargon but retain the meteorological definition for the other three seasonal turning points.

The phenological definition of spring relates to indicators, the blossoming of a range of plant species, and the activities of animals, or the special smell of soil that has reached the temperature for micro flora to flourish. The first swallow to arrive for the flowering of lilac may be the indicator of spring. It therefore varies according to the climate and according to the specific weather of a particular year.

It doesn't really matter when spring starts or what basis is used to say when it starts. Spring lasts from when it starts to when it ends, which is the day before the first day of summer.

On my calendar, it's 92 Days long. March 20th to June 20th.

It's a 'window' through which the Open Source comes.

I cannot even believe this is a point of discussion.

Only from a desperate Myst community... :roll:
