Yes, I believe it is.

I am still looking for volunteers interested in helping out with the release,
or taking over the management of it entirely.  But in the meantime Patsy Franklin
and I are willing to step up and take on the 2.30 release.  It will be out first
major release though, so please be patient with us. :-)

The six month cycle also fits in nicely with Fedora, so that is a plus from my
point of view.  So unless there are strong objections from someone I will endeavour
to ensure that January/July continues as the release months.
