I think it would be a good thing to introduce a clearly defined release
schedule. Having one would allow prioritizing new features while evaluating
how well potential changes would fit in with the KISS philosophy. 

I realize the time constraint for CRUX because this is not a big project
compared to other Linux distributions, however I find it more organized if
releases have a schedule. 

Just a thought on the topic. :)
