What I fear as a long-time Debian user is that it'll have plenty of time
to BECOME obsolete, because Etch won't be released until 2010 or
something. If Etch goes frozen by June of next year, the stable-only
policy makes perfect sense.
I think you are spot on. One of the reasons we love Debian is the
rock solid stability. The discussions leading up to the last freeze lead
me to believe most users and developers want a release cycle faster than
those in the past. IMHO 12-18 months would be ideal. I really think this
is achievable without increasing the work load on the developers
(something we can't ask).
