Hi Lucas, I appreciate your effort to try and sum things up. However, I'd like to raise the point that the discussion was about more than just having a "rolling" and "user-oriented" testing release. The feedback that started (or at least helped springboard) this massive thread was that "when we're releasing, everything else grinds to a halt, maybe it doesn't need to", followed by pondering whether there was a better way to manage this. My initial proposal apparently smelled a bit like rolling, which got out people from both the pro- and con- rolling camps, and unfortunately it seems that a good deal of the discussion ended up splintering off in that direction. While rolling may be one way of addressing the freeze blockage, it's most likely not the only way to do so. Over the weekend I took out a DEP to try and examine this underlying issue from a few different angles, including ideas that are rolling-like as well as aproaches that may be less so. sean  or, several, really, since there isn't just a single concrete rolling implementation being proposed.
