I think this should be discussed at d-d-l/release-team than lowering it to Evolution/any-other-project. We currently follow GNOME cycle, as you know. Unless we hit to a serious issue, you will be always be the waiting for a release, where as developers would waiting for a more better time to do it. We sort of do stable releases for upto 4 months (after the .0 release) or so, where as the newest version arrives in approx two months after that. What we currently discussing are those 2 months, where the stable branchs doesn't have a release, unless there is a security/vulnerability issue. It has both pros and cons. But, I would say, notify bugs, so that distro's can pick at their choice. Giving a window of a release, can probably break at times. Just my thought. -Srini. _______________________________________________ Evolution-hackers mailing list Evolutionemail@example.com http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/evolution-hackers
