If only it were that simple.  Personally, I think a release every 4 to
5 months is about right.  However, testing and actually preparing a
release are not fun.  With a volunteer organization such as Debian,
there has to be a commitment, starting at the top and running all the
way down, to get the dirty work done, even if it means putting a
complete (but temporary) stop to all other development work.
