Hopping in an out of a release cycle is a pain in the ass for those making the 
release, at the moment we release around 160 git repos. If someone needs to 
herd 160 (actually more since you want to split more stuff) maintainers to 
find out what needs and what not every 4 weeks, you can find a lot of money 
for that guy since it's going to be the worst job ever.
