instead of an unstable 6.2 in december with multiple bugfix-versions 
(->6.2.5?)until march I prefer an official stable 6.2.0 in march.

everyone willing to use an unstable version in december may use a beta 
(or any nightly build).

maybe someone can create a virtual-machine-image or any addon 
(extension?) to the normal package with an easy interface to pick up 
patches for review.

easy in a way a non-programmer (integrator?) can test features and give 
feedback, so more people can be involved in testing and improving the 
next version.
