Jenkins has been discussed -- is its governance not close enough to our
values for your taste?

Two other projects spring to mind which have migrated from ad hoc to scheduled

Firefox (though the transition was bumpy at first):

Perl 5:

    Perl 5 has come a long way in the last few years. Every month, a new
    development release comes out, shepherded by a different release manager.
    Once a year, a new major version is released. Releasing a new major
    version is no longer a months-long ordeal. When the new release schedule
    was first proposed, many of us wondered if such an ambitious plan could
    work. Now, it almost seems routine.
