While I agree that fixing more bugs would be good, I also know that there
will always be more bugs to fix in some area that's critical for someone.
There's a large number of fixes that are already committed and ready to be
released and having those out in an official release is also of high
value. It's all a bunch of tradeoffs and I think the every 4ish week
cycle works pretty well.
Also, I'm not trying to single out this particular reply or set of bugs,
just needed a post to reply to. The comment applies to several in this
thread. Bugs which don't alraedy have fixes in hand are less likely to
make it into the next release unless they're regressions introduced in
this release cycle or have a fix already written and tested.
