In the past, we had been striving for releases every 6 month.
This was already very difficult to achieve.

While I'm happy that Barry has automated his part to a high degree,
my part is, unfortunately, much less automated. I could personally
automate the build process a bit more, but part of it is also testing
of the installers, which is manual.
