[squeak-dev] 4.1 release timing

Folks -

Now that 4.0 is out it's clear that the next version will be 4.1. One 
thing that I've noticed is that various people (both on and offlist) 
have pointed out that it may be good if we'd release 4.1 ASAP in order 
to both, minimize confusion (i.e., "4.0 is like 3.10") as well as keep 
up momentum (i.e., make submissions for 4.0 and 4.1 on news sites).

Originally, I had hoped that we'd take a bit of time to talk about what 
packages, documentation, and apps to package into 4.1 but doing that 
does take time (we haven't even started the discussion yet) and would 
make it impossible to do a very quick 4.1 release. I'm open either way 
but I'm curious what the community thinks:

Would you prefer a very quick 4.1 release (4 weeks max) that *just* 
packages up the current trunk state (no extra packages in order to save 
time) or would you prefer that we take some time now discuss this 
through before 4.1?

Personally, I'm good either way; anything that won't be getting done 
this round will be in the next, but I think pepping the release up a bit 
would be good, too :-) So I'm curious what the community thinks.
