Debian and its clones Developers of the popular Debian Linux distribution are ramping up coding efforts as they plan to release the next version of their operating system in December this year. The schedule was today outlined in an e-mail to the Debian community from developer Andreas Barth, a member of the team which coordinates the process by which Debian is formally handed over to the public. "We expect to release Etch as planned in the beginning of December 2006," Barth wrote.

Even if I don't care a lot personnally as I've been using sid/unstable since the beginning of my Debian experience. However, even sid may be affected if Debien stable releases are more frequent.

For example, when woody was frozen, i.e. about to become Debian stable, KDE 3.0 packages did not go into Sid, because Debian KDE team was more busy at making a perfect kde 2.2 into Woody.
