 Maybe too early, it's probably better to answer "what do you want to
 release" before you choice the right release cycle :-)
 It means -- what is QA role, how important is upstream role, do you want to
 backport often, how stable code is expected, how important are a new features,
 do you have man-power for all your dreams?

 I can imagine that we will synchronize (for example) kernel + util-linux +
 udev + systemd upgrades for the Fedora Base upgrade, NACK feature backports
 and fix only "really important bugs" in already released Base packages.
