I hear on the other hand also suggestions for openSUSE to go on a planned 6-month release cycle like Ubuntu and Fedora does - and release say every November and May.
Is that something we should do for the future (after 11.2) - or what is the best way to do releases in general?
I'm all for the "release often" bit of it, especially if we're going to keep our current structure were we combine everything on one DVD. The reason for that is mostly due to more hardware supported by the kernel. If we don't release a new version of openSUSE every ~6 months, we would/should come up with a new structure, such as the one I proposed already (where we have a base DVD that can be released often and have the DE environments as add-ons and they would be released whenever there is a new version available).
