How "apt"ly named was squeeze, the release squeezed into only a year to
adjust the package release cycle?  And yet, I doubt that it was only I who
doubted that plan.  And, surely, many besides myself have felt this push in
the form of a short but buggy season.

So now what? If the gain on the cycle becomes 6 months instead of 1 year,
do they truncate yet another release to close the remaining 6 months between
the Big Brown One's and Debian's cycles?

Why doesn't the Big Brown one wait a year. Their forums read like they could
use some catching up.

Kind Regards,
