One angle that we could take is time based release planning, like GNOME and 
Fedora do: plan to do one or two releases per year on a rigid schedule.  The 
LilyPond 2.11 vs. 2.12 jump has been delaying for too long, but I generally do 
a biweekly release, which is stable enough to reasonably be called 'stable', and
it has worked very well so far.

The precondition for this is that there is a good test-suite so we can be
sure that a release that passes the tests is good.
