Re: [DISCUSS] Artemis Release cadence

It was actually something i meant to send last month. Wasnt related to the PR you mention.
Quite a few pr's from contributors included questions about release schedule. And without a clear cadence policy its not possible to give this. 
Also as a user having a clear cadence of a product makes it much easier to schedule around with upgrade planning etc.
I see such release cadence schedules on other open source projects and it makes expectations clear and just think it would be good to have one here, if we can agree one.

I have tried to do bug releases every 6 weeks.. sometimes it takes
longer depending on what's broken.

The thing that probaby caused you to send this was our discussion on
the PR? I think we are due for a 2.7.0, hence I thought about moving
into 2.7.0 and not doing 2.6.x any longer. WE can still do if someone
needs it.. but once we move into 2.7.0 we may not need 2.6.x any

I agree with cadencies.. however sometimes things are not as easy..
like.. right now we have a few broken tests (if you run an entire
testsuite), what would break a release.
