OK, I've caught your point and I like this. I would suggest

 - 1.9.4 will be released in early 2012. It has only small update.
   because development time is smaller than 1.9.[123].
 - 2.0 will be released in 2013 Feb. it's good candidate because ruby was born at Feb 24 1993.
 - 2.0 don't have any incompatibility
 - no ruby_1_9 branch
 - keep "release once per a year" rule
 - 3.0 may have API change, but it's 2015 or later

Thought?

At RubyKaigi,  I was surprised to  hear Matz saying "there  will be no
1.9.4 because it becomes 2.0".

Question 1: are you kidding?  or seriously speaking?

Question 2:  do you have  plan(s) for making  1.9 branch just  like we
have  1.8 branch  now?  or  the  whole 1.9  series just  die when  2.0
development starts?

Question 3: who take care of the 2.0 branch? and who for 1.9 (if any)?
Currently yugui  is the mentor of  1.9 series.  Does she  shift to 2.0
mentor and new 1.9 person to appear, or she remains to 1.9 and new one
for 2.0?
