That has not been my impression.  I have seen quite a few people
confused by the Linux odd/even system.  I think the current
major.minor.micro system works just fine.

I think the discussion should focus on whether more effort should be
spent on micro releases.  Perhaps 2.2.1 should have been finished before
work was started on 2.3.  Personally, I don't think so.
