[LLVMdev] Next LLVM release thoughts?

We definately need regular releases because that is what distribution package 
managers focus on. We need to be able to say "use LLVM 1.6 or later".  Some 
linux distros as well as Fink (OSX) currently 'have LLVM 1.5 and I assume  
they will upgrade when a new release is available.

Plus I think it is a good for any development team to have these regular 
deadlines. From my own projects I know there are a million things that are 
not as much fun as hacking on new stuff and therefor only get done when 
releases are eminent. Most of the time my mind forces these things to the 
background until they can no longer be ignored.
