Thank you. :o)
I know, but I am not asking about setting release dates.
I am asking if there is a policy about the length of the period 
between a Stable release and the next freeze.

I post to policy because I believe it is not a development question, 
but rather a policy question. Like the two-week testing cycle is a 
policy about how to manage testing.
I thought that since policy discusses policies, this list might be 
the proper place for a policy question.

Am I wrong?

Best regards
