Hi,

I'd like to move towards a more formal way of planning releases etc.
SWTBot development has so far been unplanned, non-periodic and not very
systematic.

While it is difficult for me to make commitments about a release
schedule, I'd still want to push the limits to see what can be changed
towards this goal.

As such, I'm having thoughts about moving towards a monthly release. The
developer builds will continue to be pushed a 2-3 times a week when when
bugs are fixed and new API is introduced.

What do you feel about this schedule ?

Monthly seems to be good for most users I think.

I think that's great! You could opt for the 6 week milestone schedule
that the Eclipse Platform team follows if that's easier. What people
usually do is release +1 or +2 weeks ahead of the Platform milestone
builds. If you look at the Galileo schedule, that's what the offset
value generally refers to:
