What I like about 6 months is that its short enough, so we don't have
feel bad about not taking a certain change; it can just be pushed to
the next no-too-far-away release. A year is quite a while to wait for
a fix to be released. It's also a nice timeframe for some
distributions (looking at you, Ubuntu).
