I've contemplated doing that. Basically,
cherry-pick (like Tumbleweed),

that one would effectively be following stable (in due distance).
Problem with that is it's not always easy to disentangle, and isn't as
easy as "and now we merge package X", because sometimes additional
patches would be required if you're ready to accept X, but not yet Y.
I think that's the way to do a Linux distro (even a commercial one), but
my job doesn't leave enough time to do that. With the talk of Ubuntu
switching to a rolling model now, we'll see where that goes, maybe it'll
be fresh inspiration.
I think that's the proper way forward as well, and maybe, if the build
system updates work out, we can create something like that.
But for now, I'll stick with the current model, it works best with the
limited resources we have.
