I think an annual release cycle is too long. Linux and related
applications change fast and a long release cycle risks to make users

If the release cycle is made longer, the release of updated applications
through an official channel (not additional repositories or OBS) becomes
necessary. If not done, we risk to have an obsolete distribution soon.

In my opinion, if we want a stable distribution, the use of the build
service or of additional repository should be considered an occasional
event for the common user, to get only what is not / can't be provided
in the distribution.
