My own opinion is that there should be ONE release a year -- and if
emergency problems come up patch releases are made with the caveat they are

  Thanks, but let's try 6 months and see :)

    It's both too easy to let things slip and very painful to procrastinate,
so to limit both and try to make the audience happier, I have decided to
switch libxml2 and libxslt to time based releases. At the tune of 2 releases
per year, considering the stability of the code I think it's reasonable.
For simplicity I will release both on the same day.

    So what does that mean ?

- that libxml2-2.9.4 should be out on May 20
- that libxslt-1.1.29 should be out on May 20
- that there should be a release candidate 1 around May 1st for both of
    them then an RC2 around the 10th May and a push on the 20

I cleaned up the libxslt tree a little and committed a few fixes that I
consider safe enough for the upcoming release. I have quite a few other
fixes in my queue that I'll delay until after the release.
   Thanks Nick,

I will do RC2 next week-end, if you have portability or bug fixes
I think it's still fine pushing this week,
