As far as I understand (being a person after those announcements
on distrowatch, freshmeat etc), currently we're rather OK with
testing -- better bugfixing loop would help more than more
bugreports alone.

So I only post release announcements, not RCs.

It might be so in the future if/when some sort of release
schedule practice is in place.

Some feel that's no problem with us: focussing on "the globe"
would be very fuzzy and anyway demanding for English language
resources which we're not very interested in -- that means that
focussing on "ex-USSR" or Russian-speaking audience is much more
sharp right now as a matter of fact.

BTW that might help folks to get motivated to learn Russian in
their preparation of flight to Syberia from globalism hounds. ;-)

Thanks Saleem, it's all OK; if you want, you can help me with
announcements (prerequisites: enough time on hands).
