Linux News reports out of LinuxTag late last week have Andrew Morton, the second highest ranking Linux kernel developer, calling for a bug-fixing cycle to cut down on the growing number of bugs found in the latest kernel release. NewsForge contacted the number one man on the Linux project, Linus Torvalds, who acknowledged it might be the right time for a "bug cycle".

I'm thinking it'd be better to have lots of small regular bug fix sessions rather than a much less frequent but much longer bug fix cycles.

They could even have formal arrangements for "regularly scheduled" bug fixes - for example, one month every six months, or perhaps whenever the number of known bugs hits a pre-determined limit until it reaches some lower limit.
