3. As working more strictly will require more time, I would like to
 either ditch release schedules all together or release only once a

What if we do it the other way around?  We have Tumbleweed as the
"official" openSUSE version (which is only rebased when SLES is
released), and we periodically pull out a version of Tumbleweed and
release it as a versioned openSUSE?  This version would be frozen with
a specific set of package versions, and the release cycle would only
involve fixing problems in those versions?  That way we avoid the
problem of new updates breaking existing fixes during the polishing

That might take some planning and re-thinking, but.. if we were to
move openSUSE to a full rolling release? That would get my +1 vote. I
think there are some significant bumps down that road... but... it's
at least worth considering, in my uninformed and often myopic view of
things. :-)

openSUSE 12.1 x86_64, KDE 4.8.4
