Because Roskosmos has decided not to change its launch date.

U.S. spacewalk 21 – will focus on routing power cables in preparation for the planned Russian Multipurpose Laboratory Module (MLM), which will replace the Pirs Docking Compartment in late 2013. Cassidy and Parmitano will remove and replace a Space-to-Ground Transmitter Receiver Controller, install a radiator grapple bar and retrieve a mast camera from the Mobile Base System. They also will install the first of two jumper cables on the Z1 truss. Their final tasks will include the retrieval of samples from the Materials International Space Station Experiment and the Optical Reflector Materials Experiment. If time permits, a variety of “get-ahead” tasks could be performed, including temporary cable stowage, releasing clamps on the S1 truss and relocating an articulating portable foot restraint.

U.S. spacewalk 22 – will see Cassidy and Parmitano work to remove alignment guides from the radiator grapple bars and move them to External Stowage Platform-2. Next they will work to route networking cables to the upcoming MLM location and remove insulation from one of the station’s Main Bus Switching Units. After installing a second Z1 truss jumper cable, the two astronauts will work to replace a camera on the Japanese Experiment Module Exposed Facility and install cables for the fixed grapple bar’s module’s power and data grapple fixture. Their final task will be to relocate the Wireless External Transceiver Assembly and the Video Stanchion Support Assembly from Camera Port 8 to Camera Port 11 on the truss. If time permits, the two spacewalkers will work to finish up get-ahead tasks from the previous spacewalk including the release of clamps on the S1 truss and relocating an articulating portable foot restraint.

Thermal cover for AMS is no longer needed? ???

Rapid rendezvous requires adjustment of ISS orbit. Progress doesn't need that.
Getting through max-Q for humanity becoming fully spacefaring

Ben E, I do know exactly that Volkov is assigned to Soyuz TMA-18 crew, but I do not know exactly the same about Ovchinin, that is why I have removed him from the schedule.
But at least A. Ovchinin is confirmed as the CDR of the back-up-Crew of Soyuz TMA-16 according to this TsPK site.

Anik, what is the reason for Soyuz TMA-09M remaining until possibly the end of November?

Is this a return to 'direct handovers' of expedition crews?

Thanks.

It's on L2.  ;)

I guess the dates are too volitile to be reported here until at least after the Antares test flight takes place.....

There will be direct Soyuz replacing in November because of spacewalk. Soyuz TMA-11M will be launched on November 7th and Soyuz TMA-09M will be landed on November 12th.

Is this a return to 'direct handovers' of expedition crews?

No.

No mention of Cygnus?

No, I am sorry, but, as Galactic Penguin SST said, I will wait results of first Antares launch.

For spending of all "U.S. propellant" in ATV-4 there will be possibly a deboost of ISS orbit from 410 km to 380-390 km mean height at the end of 2013.

Why the need to expend all the propellant, if it will have a negative effect on the ISS? Can ATV not just re-enter with extra propellant aboard?

This propellant is NASA contribution to ISS program, so NASA wants to expend it fully.

No, it will not, because our sun is very calm.

So why don't they reboost it with another 20-30km, instead of deboosting? What would be the drawbacks?

It would make the ISS harder to reach for VV's. As in: VV's will have to spend more propellant to reach the ISS, eating into the VV's propellant reserve.
