Why branch as early as that? Why even decide on this now? Anyone
_right now_ planning  to do work on trunk not intended for the next

What are the planned features? Which are "missing critical"? What even
is the "mission", beyond improving James?
This is a complete abstract discussion to me at this point given the
50+ JIRAs and maybe other things not even contained in JIRA. Please
enlighten me.

Jeez, what is so important about that date? - Of course I agree to
release more often than we did. Every 6 month seems absolutly
reasonable to me.
Maybe March is OK, too - but this is completely depending on the
feature set and the status of the application at that point in time.

Who is "we"?

Sorry, I don't want to get into a fist fight here, so please let's
take a step back.
We have decided and agreed about the general direction, this is very good.
Now let's go to work and see where it gets us.
At any point in time we can get back to discussion and adjust our
yet-not-so-complete roadmap.
