to release not properly tested code just because the schedule
says so. But the intention is to at least initiate the process of
preparing stable releases mainly based on time, i.e. in particular
not taking into account the (possibly small) set of accumulated

If anyone is heavily objecting to this, or foresees other kinds of
problems with this scheme - please speak up soon!
