I personally favor the 2 months release cycle. My main (mostly practical)
reason being here, that I don't have to queue non-fixes patches that long
and can push them upstream more frequently / sooner.

But I can also live with the 3 month release cycle, so if the majority
prefers this, then lets stick with it.
