+1 from a community marketing perspective as well. I'm glad there's
general consensus that with the tail wagging the dog, Drupal will
benefit from a slowdown so D6 can get established in the marketplace
before pushing D7 out. However, I'm -1 on making this a policy towards
a new 18-month release cycle. I feel rolling with the flow makes
sense. If D8 is coming along well, there will be little to gain by
delaying it in the interests of a general slowdown.
My two bits.
