Here's the result of the German community.
After the initial opening of the poll there was a discussion with more
than 40 postings, still going on. Involved were people actively using
ArchLinux, members of our packaging team and interested users. Voters
had the chance to alter their vote during the discussion, which was
used by some who learned more about "rolling release" during the
* Exactly as Mandriva, 6 months release cycle 4%
* Exactly as Mandriva, 12 months release cycle 20%
* 6 months cycle for core, rolling release model for other software 13%
* 12 months cycle for core, rolling release model for other software 41%
* Rolling release 22%
With 54 % this is a majority for the "rolling light" model (where the
12 months cycle for core received the most votes). Remarkable is the
fact that the Mandriva release cycle (6 months) came in last.
