Yes, I was confident that you had misunderstood, and I consciously chose not to
take the time to try to review the comments and explain myself, preferring to
have you do that work (or Justin, since it was him I was addressing).

(a) Check your calendar: April or May plus six months = October or November.

(b) We weren't talking about "the" "regular six-month or so interval", we were
talking about shorter release cycles.

In part of my message to which Justin was replying I said:

Little did I know then that Justin has a big dislike for short release intervals.

OK, maybe Justin thought that, after a shortened v1.4 interval, v1.5 would
follow after a lengthened period of more than seven months. I thought we were
talking about generally shortening the intervals to say four or five months,
which would put the v1.5 release in September or October. At any rate, it
would be distinctly in 2006.

I hope this shows why I was exasperated at your "You said it yourself".
