haha ok Brian.

What I suggested to Brian, to fend off Hibernate, and to let people 
know that activity is high and on for this project we need to schedule 
releases with defined cycles and commit ourselves to them.

I am not suggesting anything hard, or anything aggressive, but short 
and sweet.

What I told Brian is that we need to put out 1.0.1 in the next 2 weeks. 
  if we don't know what should go in it, then let's figure it out.  It 
doesn't have to be much, but it will be enough to get people's 
attention that we're putting out releases.

I believe that every 4 weeks there needs to be a release.  That release 
is a .0.x release which would include fixes from previous dot releases, 
and then contain small to medium improvements.

There should be a .x release every 3 months.  Again I am not suggesting 
we throw the kitchen sink of changes at the user, I am suggesting 1-2 
major feature change every 3 months along with the small incremental 
changes and fixes.

A 3 month short cycle of features and fixes we can handle, provides a 
constant stream of improvements to the user which doesn't overwhelm 
them, allows them to grow their application with the changes, and 
allows the user to expect what will be coming next.

The JDO stuff Brian was referring to is not a 3 months cycle.  It might 
be rolled incrementally as part as some builds, while the skeleton and 
some of the back end code might be added in cycles, the api might not 
be available for 2-3 cycles or as part of a major release.

First thing we need is a list of feature requests, enhancements, and 
bugs.  I know there is a bug tracker somewhere which I have not 
accessed yet, and we can determine from that what we can do.

I can also install XPlanner on my server and we can run the control of 
the cycles from there, and adjust our load based on the output over
