That's awesome news- no need to rush a good thing with 9.2 :)

My question was about the 10.x release schedule suddenly being front and center, (with aggressive dates at that!). Why the apparent push?


It's confusing to new users, as well as old farts like me.

Getting a chance to put a REL to use, and not just dev on it, o spend lifer upgrading, is very important to sustaining the project.  If we don't get to use (and maintain) the OS, what's the point of it's existence?

So, being more positive- what's happening that gets three major versions of one OS, up on the FreeBSD  homepage even?  What's the rush?
