Funny, but the most interesting item for me would be the 4.7 code freeze
and release date :) I know it might be impossible to tell yet, but some
date range is probably possible to be provided. I guess more people are
like me, but they had no time yet to express that.
Anyway, back to topic, I am unsure that Drupal 5.0 should be used for
the name of the release coming after Drupal 4.9, just because the second
digit overflows. Otherwise I am +1 on a predictable release cycle. Also
three releases for 2006 seems to be good, it is more than what we are
going to do in 2005, which should be positive for Killes I guess :)
