What is the benefit, other than some imagined 'one wave' sort of release
Will short release schedules attract developers? Will they allow developers
to work at their optimum? Will the software produced be better, faster, more
bug free, secure?
Or is it some way of regimenting a rather disparate group of people whose
motivations, availability, goals are as different as there are individuals?
Will it drive volunteer developers away from projects?
Releases are a serious source of friction within a project. However you
define friction. What is the problem that is solved by more of it?
Personally I avoided getting a career in software development because the
industry had the tendency to eat people with the demands of meeting
ridiculous release schedules. Now we can not only eat people, but not have to
pay them too?
