I think you have a point.
There was a very interesting discussion on "FreeBSD and release engineering".
There were some proposals made, but in my view this is the most important one.
There are too many "production releases" - at present including versions
7.4, 8.2, and 9.0 .
Cutting one would refocus devs and users on the remainig two, with obvious
benefits to FreeBSD product.
