Personally I would much rather see branching and
releases happening
when the developers feel it is ready to happen
than on a planned date.
That being said the DragonFLy team seems to do
better at hitting
the planned dates than most commercial OS
I don't make the demands but I am demanded by my
clients to satisfy them by supplying them a good product. If it was entirely
up to me I wouldnt be making the inquiries at all(I dont care if its
released in january or 3 months later) but I have clients, hence why Ive
often turned to FreeBSD when DF was missing a feature which I
needed. Therefore I might be sounding to have demanding tone, but thats
because DF is my personal OS of choice and especially because of my clients.
(not that they specifically request DF but because thats what I
offer them + maintenance).

My apologies.


I'm an early newbie and not having clue about development but... Have you considered to pay developers for having those exact branching dates and features you want for your clients? If you receive something for free, I think you can't demand something. If you pay explicitely for it (and I don't mean just donations), then you can.

As I've seen as in my stupid user experience on other
projects, it's better to not give dates when you are
unsure to comply them. Then is better to give
approximately dates thinking in the worst situation,
so if it's released earlier it will look like a nice
surprise ;)

I've already been doing it in a way as the *context functions come out of my pocket. I sort of don't see point in pay for branching dates though as they are inevitable (as in they will always happen at some stage). As I said before I'm gonna have to push the deadline by a couple of days or I will update to 1.8 remotely (which i wanted to avoid in first place since who knows how that server will take it)
