Sorry to chime in late on this - I saw the discussions going by in December but paid no attention
as I was mostly not working then.

Ok, but a month is a long time and if components aren't released "together" then both in the
same month may not mean much.

It is unusual. Not necessarily bad, but it will require more explanation and attention because
of the confusion it would cause.

Also, what do we mark JIRA entries with for "fix version"? If we don't know the time a next
release will come, it's hard to mark the next release, and our current odd-even won't work
any longer either. It's important to be able to tell when a bug was fixed.
