What about doing both :

o  First a conservative rolling distribution. There's a lot of demand for that kind of distribution, even Debian seems to think about a stable testing. It would be the way to use Mageia for the average desktop user.

o  In addition an about-1-year release cycle distribution, a "snapshot" of the rolling one, supported 2 years, more suitable for entreprise/server use or for people with very low internet bandwith.

I'm not certain it would be more time consuming than a 6 month release cycle, and it would please a lot of people.
