I think you are being slightly absurd. If you want DragonFly to go into

and they are much bigger than mine "is it gonna be branched today as 
	Personally I would much rather see branching and releases happening
when the developers feel it is ready to happen than on a planned date.
	That being said the DragonFLy team seems to do better at hitting
the planned dates than most commercial OS developments.
I don't make the demands but I am demanded by my clients to satisfy them 
by supplying them a good product. If it was entirely up to me I wouldnt 
be making the inquiries at all(I dont care if its released in january or 
3 months later) but I have clients, hence why Ive often turned to 
FreeBSD when DF was missing a feature which I needed. Therefore I might 
be sounding to have demanding tone, but thats because DF is my personal 
OS of choice and especially because of my clients. (not that they 
specifically request DF but because thats what I offer them + maintenance).

My apologies.
