Didn't we discuss this back in the "120 day release cycle" thread? It was decided that WP as a community works best to release-when-ready and that's the way things work out...

My re-reading of the thread in question [1] gives the opposite impression -- most people seemed excited by the prospect of a fixed cycle.

I don't see why not. If it doesn't look like it's working, it's the
easiest thing in the world to revert to "release when ready". Just
miss the deadline and you're there.

The Debian Project and Fedora miss deadlines quite frequently, for precisely these reasons. Even Ubuntu has joined the club (belated 6.06 and a premature release of 6.10). What's probably more important is a long /support/ cycle, e.g. the 36-month support for inclusion in Debian stable repositories (separate old thread).

Congrats  to  Automattic,  by the way. Earlier  I  saw  some
graphs  which indicate that WordPress.com is due to overtake
TypePad. So quickly! 100,000 new blogs a day, some day...
Best wishes,
