Are the developers forcing the (I believe ?) 8 months cycle and falling
down on the QA testing before the rollout ?

We plan the schedule in such a way that we have enough time for everything.

Still sometimes you need to sleep - openSUSE 12.1 was released one week later than initially planned due to a couple of serious issues where we needed extra time.

Eluding to: My wife works is a contract QA tester and on several
occasions she has been told that - basically the hell with QA testing -
we HAVE to meet the target rollout date - and - those little errors can
be fixed later.

Is this happening - or - am I wrong ?

There are known bugs and we can update them via online updates. Some bugs are only found once the goldmaster is out and others just take longer.

We check that we have no shipstopper bugs - and everybody can propose that a bug is a shipstopper - and only release once all shipstoppers are fixed,
