The faster schedule is a good thing, overall. The developers recognize
that the ~18-month (!) wait for 0.21 and 0.20 each (!!) was a horrible
mistake. It prevented the majority (the vast majority, in the former
case) of MythTV users from using important enhancements such as
Storage Groups (0.21) and VDPAU (0.22) for far, far, far longer than
they should've had to wait.
If 0.23 gets delayed significantly beyond the March 2010 release
target, expect to see more backports of key bugfixes to -fixes and/or
an 0.22.1 release.
