The move to a fixed release schedule is very much appreciated as this helps us in planning updates/upgrades on a regular basis. So I am looking forward in receiving new/fresh versions twice a year. Two questions/remarks remain, however:

1) Does this fixed release cycle also include minor bug fixing releases like 4.1.1 or will they also be released in between (which would be very important IMHO - e.g. due to required security fixes)?
2) It would be very good/helpful if you guys could open your public bugtracking/ticket system (bugzilla) so that users from outside could also few the ticket-based roadmap information for the upcoming releases. While bugzilla is really a powerful bug/ticket system, something like ‚trac‘ would be probably more handy as this lets you better/easier define milestones and assign tickets to them so that public users can also see/track the status of a particular milestone, etc. Are there any plans for something like that?
