Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] 6 month release cycle

I would go even further, are the current packages really tested anyway?
There are probably a couple ppl opening them up to see if things are at the right place but I can't imagine that a heavy testing is done.

I think quality comes from extensive automated testing and then hands-on usage. A fully automated release process would of course cover the first. So the question is really, do we want our users to do the hands-on testing for us? That in turn, begs the question, aren't we doing that already? Assuming that many projects do, then a more frequent release cycle will actually increase quality, not the opposite. And it shortens the bug-fixing cycle dramatically.
