I've done the same thing and been pushing JEXL snapshots for sometime to
avoid the unpleasant moment, so unpleasant that I've procrastinated enough
to now have to consider alternatives.
I find disturbing that committers fear to release and that goodwill to share
features and code is killed by the process that should help publish them -
not oppose them!

I agree that a "release early, release often" scheme would help but I've no
idea how to achieve this without a "release faster" mean.

However, I ultimately suspect that the vested interest of some in promoting
a hard, difficult and lengthy process relates to how their bills get payed
and by whom; there is a huge difference in those of us doing this as a
"goodwill hobby" - so to speak - because we feel it is good ethics to
contribute back and those who make a living from it. Can't blame them for
making sure their fees stay high by ensuring "hobbyists" don't get too
efficient! (just kidding :-))

Cheers,
Henrib
