Release schedule

Dear community,

I have a question regarding the scheduling of releases.

All of my production machines are currently running releng/10.1. This
release has at least two severe (for me) problems:
- An external USB 3.0 HD enclosure never negotiates successfully for USB
3.0 when connected. This worked better in 9.2 (PR:
- A serious kernel memory allocation issue involving VirtualBox which
did not exist in 9.2 (PR:

At least the first one might already be corrected in stable/10, but, the
release engineering page tells
me that 10.2 is planned only for November 2015 (and 11.0 for July 2016).

So my question is, would it be possible to have a somewhat less
drawn-out release schedule? Maybe at fixed times twice during the year,
so that a certain rhythm will evolve?
