 From my point of view bi-monthly release are too much. For a ?.?.1
release two months are fine because several issues are found by 3rd
party authors. But after that a release every quarter is sufficient.

* .1 release two months after the .0 release
* .2, .3, .4 and .5 release every quarter
* about here the next minor release gets out
* .6 and further releases after 6 months when necessary
