Time based releases

We want to do time-based rather than feature based releases. See for example GNOME's info on time-based releases. They've done this very successfully.

First major release, 2009.2.x

Proposed schedule for minor releases:

  • 2009.2.0, Monday 4th May
  • Freeze for package changes for 2009.2.1: Monday 18th May
  • 2009.2.1, Monday 1st June (4 weeks after .0)
  • 2009.2.2, Monday 13th July (6 weeks after .1)

Secnd major release: 2009.4.x

  • ?? (first release to include non-extralibs packages)
