If you want Ubuntu or Progeny, you know where[1] to find them. :-)

Seriously. There's just no way you're going to change the way Debian
makes releases, or rather, doesn't. It's too big, and there are just
too damn many people involved, many of whom simply don't care about
releases. As long as we maintain our current release criteria (which I
don't necessarily think we should change) we will get slower and slower
as we get bigger and bigger.
