Re: Intentions for 1.11 release timing

Can others approve or comment on this reduced plan please, especially those who +1'd the previous statement ( http://svn.apache.org/r1834111 ) which I now think was too onerous?

Suggested wording:

Subversions delivers two kinds of stable releases:

  * Long Term Support (LTS):
    - release every 2 years; 4 years support; emphasis on stability
  * standard:
    - release every 6 months; 6 months support; emphasis on features

Support means we will fix critical issues (security/corruption). We may also sometimes fix other issues as appropriate to the emphasis of each release.

I also invite suggestions for a better name than "standard" for the 6-month releases. ("Quick", "unstable", "enthusiast", ...)
