half-year based release seems predictable for other projects and a reasonable duration(close to the average gap between 2.6.x releases).
maybe it's time for Linus to stick to the 6-month release cycle now? this may bring efficiency for related projects as well, also you can have the long-term kernel every few years, this is how ubuntu works these days and it's quite good in practice I think.
