You'd probably be surprised how rarely we hear from maintainers from any 
distro.  It's weird.

The other side of that coin is when the users come to us to bitch about bugs 
we fixed 18 months ago in a release that's been out for a year.

I'm sure other projects feel the same way, but I can also sympathize with how 
painful your job is.  Everybody wants the very latest incremental point 
release with three enhanced new icons, even though it came out a week after 
the freeze you announced well in advance.

I don't have any better ideas than the current scheme of things.  It's just 
annoying for all parties involved.

Plus the pay seriously sucks, and the hot gorgeous chicks have NOT been 
beating a path to my door.  Don't know about you.  :D

My fame and glory precede me again.  :)
