How about if we slip FC5 just a little more so that it is released in May on 
FC4's 1st anniversary? That would give us enough time to make a test4 and 
maybe even a test5 release to iron out all the new X bugs.

hehe, just kidding.

After 2-1/2 years, I think Fedora development has all but proved that 6 months 
is the minimum time between good distribution releases.  It doesn't look like 
we're ever going to see 4 months.

I'm not saying that 4 months isn't possible, just that the track record seems 
to show that 6 months is the "right" timeframe.

I'm not saying that 4 months is a bad goal.  On the contrary, I think setting 
tough goals is (usually) a good thing; it spurs us all on to accomplish 
things we never have before.
