As I seem to be the only advocate of 3 month releases with a voice at 
the moment, OK. We can play it by ear, though I would prefer to at least 
have a targeted release date for 6 months time somewhat set in stone. If 
it needs re-arranging by a week or two closer to the time, fair enough. 
If when we make said release we feel it was too far from the last 
release, we can change our plan.
