I would definitely prefer that all core projects follow the same
(time-based) milestones, as it makes the release management work (and
the communication around what's being worked on, which helps building a
community) a lot simpler.

That said, I respect that Swift is in a more mature,
slower-rate-of-change development state that makes frequent releases
more appropriate. So before pushing for convergence, I would encourage a
model that also does frequent releases for the other core projects.

Expect a discussion on that at the design summit.
