Indeed, we have the choice between a 12 month release cycle we *know*
we won't respect and a 18-month release cycle we might have a chance
to respect....if a general "mind freeze" begins in about 12 months
(what I call a "mind freeze" is what we have since early August 2004
when the freeze of the base system was announced).

A key point is certainly building up a release schedule ASAP so that
all individual maintainers can establish their own schedules for their
packages. For instance, it will certainly have a great influence on
the d-i team projects for the installer.
