Ubuntu Monthly Update Cadence Proposal

Dear Bryan and all!

I think that the greatest problem nowadays is that reported bugs are not
fixed and/or even triaged.
I have asked for support on community.ubuntu.com (
https://community.ubuntu.com/t/improving-bug-visibility/2626). But bug
visibility is still low.
Sometimes I think to stop reporting bugs, but I want to make Ubuntu better.
So I'll continue (https://bugs.launchpad.net/~nrbrtx).

As conclusion I can say the following - if "Monthly Update Cadence
Proposal" will help to fix cosmetic (non-security, non-critical) bugs
inside (or before) LTS lifecycle, than it would be really great. LTS must
be stable and user-friendly.

With best regards,

> Hi,
> Instead of releasing a version of Ubuntu every 6 months, we release
> select core components of Ubuntu every month.  Updates to core
> components would need to be staggered so that no closely coupled
> components would see a major release within the same month.
> We'd provide a newsletter every month before the core components land
> and provide possible plans for the next 2 months.
> There would be at least one additional place (PPA) to test every core
> component update before it gets to -proposed.
> My hypothesis is that this will help create stability and make the
> monthly releases predictable enough that we will get more users than
> we currently have on our non-LTS releases.
> It would be possible to try this process for 18.10.  If it shows
> itself to be an improvement, we can keep doing it indefinitely.  If
> not, we can call it a failed experiment and release 18.10.
