There's some truth in that.  Firefox missed its first deadline in its new
six week release schedule by a couple weeks -- and the Mozilla Foundation
was *not* suggesting it would be "somewhere around" six weeks.

In fact, I wish open source developers would adhere to hard and fast
schedules less, and focus more on the quality of what they release.
FreeBSD is better about this than many other high-profile projects I
could name.
