Didn't I already ask you not to top post? Please don't top post.

Yeah, gentoo has tried quarterly releases before, back in 2004. The releases 
were of poor quality and the release engineering devs hated the lack of a break 
between almost constant release cycles.

You say it should only be stages, but if we do that, people will say that we 
should just refresh the minimal CD with a new kernel. And then people will argue 
that we should just refresh the LiveCD for new versions of large packages, 
because they don't want to do all the compiling to update to a new version.

Are you going to take the time to become a dev, contribute to the effort of 
building and testing these refreshes, fix bug, and all the other stuff that goes 
along with it?
