""Of course," compained Lefebvre, "[focusing on consolidation
instead of cutting-edge features] wouldn't make sense for Ubuntu
unless we became an upstream component of their distribution. I'm
really happy with what Ubuntu is doing, and if I were to change
anything… it would be the commitment to a release schedule
and the return of a 'release when ready' policy to guarantee a
stronger level of quality against regressions."
"I would prefer that the release cycles were not strictly six
months," said Limonciello. "Over the last few releases there have
been a variety of bugs that weren't deemed to 'hold up' the release
and could just be fixed in a Stable Release Update. I'm of the
opinion if you have a fix for the bug that you know works, you
shouldn't put off the fix just to meet a deadline for releasing a
CD. It's better to include the fix sooner and give a better
experience to the user out of the box."
