He probably means the second. However, going by our current rate of  
progress, that will be anything between 1.5 and 2 years from now -- so  
temporary is a very relative term.

You know, we might benefit from a GNOME style release timetable. At any  
given time about two thirds of svn head is rock solid stability-wise, so I  
suspect getting a release out every 6 months may not as hard as we think  
it is.
