I'm agree  with 2 release a year, It will reduce load on QA team and
also insure better integration with distros.  I think 3 month release
time frame is too small, specially size of mono project growing by
each release, so it is very difficult ensure that every peice works
I suggest releases should be on Feb and August ( atleast 2 months
before new releases of major distros[for me Ubuntu and Fedora])
