We are in dire need of cleanup time.
Less new and cool, more housekeeping.
Doing bugfixes and maintenance is less sexy in comparison to implementing new features and nobody wants to do it.
we could do longer RCs or so
We have some serious catching up to do. We ignored the housekeeping part for the last <forever> time.
We'd have a reliable stable release (at least more stable than the other one).
We can guarantee stability have having a well tested Release candidate instead of the long wait
A lot of bugfixes end up becoming features. Proper classification might be a problem. We could have number of bugfix issue goals for each release. The maintainers can be asked to pick 5 each and work on them before the next release. If this is about cleanup we can tackle it statistically.
"'do only bugfixes or your change will be in the merge queue for a month' does not lead to very fun work" -- underyx
