No one is advocating that development be stopped, or saying that minor
upgrades like 2.9 to 2.9.1 are too onerous.  The difficulty for most of
us is that major upgrades like 2.8 to 2.9 (which has a libpcap version
dependency that's out of sync with the biggest Linux vendor in the
world) are being forced with narrow planning and deployment windows due
to a lifecycle policy based on frequent minor/patch releases instead of
infrequent major releases.

i believe the above states it extremely well...
