Since the number of upgrade/downgrade  trajectories and  mixed client 
server versions increases dramatically with each new version, along with 
more builds and tests with multiple jdk  versions and platforms to 
track. I would think maybe a bug fix drive followed by a 10.8.3 release 
and then a 10.9 late in the year with more than the short list of 
features we have on the 10.9 list would be good.

Are there pressing needs that necessitate a 10.9 vs a 10.8.3 right 
away?  I believe  release early, release often is good, but because of 
the explosive nature of maintenance with each new major release, I think 
it might be good to do one more 10.8 release before 10.9.

Just my opinion.
