The release cycle will /probably/ also be around two years. What a lot of people have desired is a shorter *freeze* - as in spending less time frozen and more time developing. Given the latter half of our freeze tends to involve mostly frustration, fragmentation of developers and very few bug fixes, I am personally one of the people, who would like to see Debian have shorter freezes. Thanks, ~Niels  Notably by having fewer bugs that need to be fixed /when/ we freeze.
