Two releases per year seems more manageable.

they're happy with how we're working as a community and consider us to be ready to be a top
level Apache project.)

process, we found that there was quite some time pressure to get things done and maybe we
should take more time and thereby be able to provide more quality.

release could be great). Of course, Apache NetBeans does not serve the Java community only,
though those two months of March and September are fairly spaced anyway and potentially could
allow us to provide bundles with those JDKs if and when that were to be possible.

in pinning down bugs and in providing code contributions for missing features.
