So how about a more "Tick Tock" based approach, does that provide more flexibility and is it more natual?
X.0 - kernel, glibc, gcc, binutils, base utitlities, filesystems (rest feature stable, bug fixes only) X.1 (KDE) (OOo) - core stuff proven (and stabilised), latest applications X.2 (GNOME) - more application updates (FINAL release goes to retail, upgrade from X.1 & 11.1)
That would work best if upstream projects would align their releases with this schedule. If not, we might end up being woefully behind the curve in key areas, I'm afraid.
(Within any given release cycle, having such a staged approach at least as a goal certainly makes sense, and we have been doing this to some extent.)
