I would personally be happy with a release cycle of between 6 months to
1 year.  However, see section VI of my platform for a more detailed

I'd like to see a cost/benefit analysis of Raphaël's idea; if the ratio
is low (low cost), then I think it's a good idea.

I think the benefit part of the equation increases if our release
lag time issues aren't sufficiently addressed.

To clarify, I said I'd like to put together a team to analyze the
feasibility of doing this; it's not something I am bent upon.

For more information, see section X of my platform.
