We are aiming for a quarterly release. 1.35.0 took five months, but our
infrastructure and procedures are improving, so I hope the next one can
be done in three months.
We probably need to be a bit more specific about schedules. For example,
a twelve week schedule might look something like this:
* New libraries, major revisions of old libraries, and big
infrastructure changes need to be merged in the first three weeks.
* Minor fixes can be merged up until three weeks before the release
* Release candidate generation and review will begin three weeks before
the release target date.
