In the end, I think the idea behind Manjaro – rolling release at a more relaxed pace – can be achieved. I am not entirely familiar with these distributions, but I guess that is exactly what apotsid and LMDE achieve. And they start from Debian Unstable, which is reportedly far more of a minefield than Arch Linux.
Q. How can you tell that Debian is trying to release?
A. There's always a huge discussion about release processes, covering
almost every previously discussed and documented proposal.
Oh, and someone whines about the name. I haven't seen the headlines that
we're late in the release yet though, so that's a refreshing change.
