we'd have to go for a 3 month, 6 month or a  12 month release cycle, or just 
live with the fact that we're not gonna make everyone happy all the time. I 
would support a 6 month cycle. It is just deciding now if 4.1 should be on a 
3 month schedule to be aligned, or a 9 month schedule. Or if we ignore anyone 
and just schedule on 6 months, knowing that we're perfectly disaligned then. 

However, it looks like fedora, mandriva, ubuntu are aligning on a 6 month 
schedule, roughly around the same month even. opensuse seems to be the 
exception, where they struggle with their SLE releases inbetween. From my 
personal feeling, I think a 6 month schedule could benefit KDE, given that we 
have many students contributing. As an example :)
