My heart sank when I saw the suggestion!  And why necessarily 6 monthly?  It 
makes sense for the Ubuntu build, but that is faster than Debian's own 
release cycle.  I personally would rather that Trinity 3.x.x were released 
when it is ready, rather than on time, but buggy.  

And surely people can wait a bit?  The more of us users you lot have, the more 
of a demanding nuisance we shall become.  We do not forward the project at 
all. I think all of us should shut up or put up.  (Doesn't quite fit my pleas 
over the web-site, but you have no idea what a rare luxury your website is.)  

When a job applicant once told me that, if I didn't give him the job I was 
advertising, he would emigrate, I had to exert considerable self control to 
stop myself briefly replying: "Bon voyage!"

If someone says "Do this or I'll go", my response is "goodbye!" (And that is 
if I'm feeling polite!)

Carry on as you wish to.  I shall continue to sit in my little corner crossing 
my fingers for the things that are dear to my heart.  

And if we have a little something that is annoying us, or that we feel we 
cannot live with, we can always try asking David Hare.  He is a genius at
