I know the good reasoning behind the time-based releases, but have they

Yes and No.

Yes: It's a must to have Zope 2 and Zope 3 in sync. Zope 2 development got a some more momentum again.. No: Half a yr is a short time. Major changes happened right short before the first beta release. Not all Zope users won't follow this fast release cycle.

Yes, the 6 month cycle is very short. All of a sudden we have a situation where a whole slew of releases/branches is out there (2.7, 2.8, 2.9, 2.10, trunk) and I bet *no one* can say what's really supposed to be supported and what isn't. And if someone fixes a bug and wants to do "the right thing" by fixing it everywhere the effort keeps on growing.

I think the 6 month number was picked as a good first guess how best to handle the new release process, and IMHO we should look at that again and adjust it.

For me, the fact that Zope 2.9.3 still emits
deprecation warnings on a fresh install (zLOG...) is a pretty bad sign.

I think this is a dead horse now. Some things were deprecated without actually converting all instances where the deprecated code was in use. It's in your power to do something about it, go ahead.
