Ok I am gonna stir the pot a little bit. I think should axe the KDE and XFCE editions (sorry) and in fact move away from being a 'distribution' first. They should reapply their focus and become a DE creator that happens to have their own distro to showcase it rather then be a distro creator that happens to build desktop environments.
As such the front page on their website should list every new version of mate and cinnamon, pushing out updates every few months to be used on other distros. They should focus on making mate and cinnamon as awesome as they should be with regular updates and just have a debian and/or ubuntu spin of each DE as a way to showcase them.
I think this because of what the developers of cinnarch said about how far behind gnome cinnamon is in terms of updates and it's not being suitable to use as a rolling release. I think cinnamon has huge amounts of (as yet unrealised) potential and would like to see it move forward massively.
Yes I am expecting a huge amount of bashing for this but what are your thoughts.

Ubuntu going to a rolling release is a great thing. Mint can easily remain compatible with Ubuntu although their time lines may change to pre-screen the changes.

http://bible.us/Hos14.9.NIV Who is wise? Let them realize these things.
Who is discerning? Let them understand.
The ways of the Lord are right;
the righteous walk in them,
but the rebellious stumble in them.
