LXer: Proposed: A Monthly Ubuntu Release Cycle

Published at LXer:

There's been a proposal written today for a new Ubuntu release process. Under this proposed process, Ubuntu would abandon its traditional six-month release cycles in favor of monthly releases. Yep, once a month. The benefit of this proposal is that new Ubuntu features wouldn't be forced to land every six months but would land when the given feature is actually mature and ready. This is quite different from Ubuntu's current release process, but this proposal comes from Scott James Remnant, the former Canonical employee and Ubuntu Developer Manager.

If they can't get things right after 6 months, how are they going to do it after one month?

Ubuntu users will flee their distribution in masses. Who wants to re-install every month because the upgrade didn't work?
