I looked around the forums but couldn't find a post or sticky somewhere.
I am new to rolling-release Arch and would like to understand how does Garuda manage the roadmap (schedule) of its releases?
As a starting point, and I know this is not how rolling-releases work, in Kubuntu there are dates at which the releases are scheduled, so you know what will be released when. Then when you perform a
distribution upgrade it takes, say your Kubuntu 20.04 and upgrades it to Kubuntu 20.10. If you want to change flavor for Ubuntu, you have to use the Ubuntu ISO and start from fresh, or almost (there is a way to switch the DE directly without the ISO I've done it but let's keep the concept simple here for my question ).
Now for Garuda how does this work?
Do we know when the next release is scheduled?
And when it is released, can we perform a distribution upgrade (
pacman -Syu I guess) of the current installed edition without changing the edition to another one? For example, if running Dr460nized non-gaming Serpent Eagle, I run pacman -Syu to upgrade to Dr460nized non-gaming Black Arch (let's assume next release will be called that)?
