Our (in)ability to do releases?

I'm not seeking to accuse anybody, but feel I should speak up about
the way I'm feeling.

Ever since 1.3, I feel like we're more and more unable to get releases
out the door (within a reasonable time after branching).

I haven't identified any reasons why this might be happening or even
what to do about them. That is the reason of this mail: do others feel
the same? Do you have ideas why it is happening? Do you have ideas how
to prevent it?

One possible reason is that we have too many changes per release: most
of which go largely untested as long as they're on trunk, getting
first exposure on a release branch. When many changes/new features are
exposed this way, stabilization takes a long time. This ofcourse isn't
in any way 'the truth'. I hope others have thought about it too.

bye,

Erik.
