If you think it is community based distro, and you want more frequent stable 
releases (say, one release per year, i.e. every December before the Christmas 
holidays ;-) then you might want to help to keep testing (resp. unstable) as 
close as possible to a reasonable releaseable state. This means sending 
decent bugreports, patches, etc. ... that should be community-made I belive, 
and not just shouting out 'oh, can't wait, your old software doesn't not 
support my new hardware'.

Will you approach ubuntu's mailing lists the same way when next Debian Stable 
got released with much more current software than the latest Ubuntu Stable 
release ?
