Awkwardly, I think it will be exactly six months after the relevant month that this will be published. Hmm. I wonder if I could still a year in there with any subtleness to avoid the ambiguity.

One thing I've learned from the Civil Service is to never be unintentionally ambiguous. Whilst intentional ambiguity is a valuable skill!

It's someone else's work, so I'm debating the merits of de-ambiguisation.

(I think I meant to write "slip" instead of "still" in that previous comment.)

Round my way, you can disambiguate by saying "this May coming" and "this May gone".

I agree with your disambiguation. Also agree with moral_vacuum that the length of time elapsed matters. Round about now (late August/Sept), "This May just gone," is starting to turn into "Last May".
