Wouldn't there be more manpower available for more frequent minor releases
if the project were not undertaking two simultaneous "production"
releases ? Specifically, wouldn't it have been feasible to be at 8.4
right now if much of 2011 had not been spent breaking ground on 9.0 ?
Further, isn't the lack of focus, or "polish" of the current release also
impacted by these decisions ?
Of course there is a limited amount of manpower, but for the points I
