That would work if the Karmic cut-off date wouldn't be early August :) I
am all for doing the right thing for CouchDB and not anybody else's
project. But I'm really motivated to get 0.10 into the hand of the  
Ubuntu users instead of 0.9.

If we start there now, we could have releases on August 1st, November  
February 1st and May 1st. These dates nicely avoid christmas season when
everyone is busy anyway.
