If there is 1 release every 6 months, this mean 71 years.

71 years ago, John Lennon was not born yet, the world war II was just
started, and the whole internet stuff didn't exist. 

In 71 years, given the current rate of changing one name every 6 years
( mandrakesoft to mandriva, mandriva to mageia ) and forking every 12
years, we will be doing plan for the 6th Mageia fork, with counter
starting at 1 again :)
