As opposed to your post Diederick, I really like the idea to have new
releases more often. I would rather like to prt-get update mechanism to
be as stable as possible and not change anything important - to give as
much stability and security as possible. New features, new major
versions of big applications/frameworks/desktop environments should go
into new distribution release.

Of course some people would like to have security updates for older crux
versions to be published longer then for a half of year. But that would
require some extra work to do...

Anyway I would love to see new crux every winter and summer for example.
