Yes, this sounds like a decent approach for the time to come.

I agree that we should not branch CVS before after 2.0.1 is released. We
need to focus on fixing the worst of the bugs in 2.0.0. Hopefully this
will help us avoid the 'lets break everything and work on new features'
mania. :)

A 3 months release cycle for 2.2 sounds reasonable to me. This will give
us enough time to fix the outstanding bug reports and we will have time
at GIMPCon2004 to discuss a road map for 2.4.
