I think that monthly is a bit too often.  What do folks think about 4
months between releases (with snapshots in the interim)?  That would
allow for several months of development following each release and then
a month or two for changes to settle and the next release to be made.

This will be difficult to coordinate between all of the platforms.  It
would be helpful if there were a couple of developers for each port who
could trade off responsibilities for different releases.  It might also
be nice to have someone who doesn't do much, if any, development but who 
is responsible for building the release and keeping the docs, etc. up to
date for a given platform.
