I agree it would be better for users to get fewer features and quicker  
releases, however it's not user-driven and until I crank out some  
code, I don't feel like I have any say in it. Maybe it would help if  
it was explained a bit why a release is decided to contain certain  
features and not released until those features are met. I imagine that  
many developers work all at the same time on different parts of the  
system and when each part is finally done, the release happens. So  
rather than saying, "We're all going to work on Features A and B" like  
in a commercial software dev cycle, it's more like, "Everyone pick a  
feature you want and we'll say the next release is when each of those  
is done" which pushes release schedules out. Especially when someone  
gets busy with work they're being paid to do or whatever other things  
are happening in their lives. Of course, I'm only guessing but I do  
work in software so it's an educated guess. :)
