I cannot see how the Apache policies prevent a project to release on a  
regular schedule. As other people mentioned here, nothing prevents a  
project from having a weekly release as long as the 72h votes are  
respected and the vote passes. This week's vote got rejected? Improve the  
release and try again next week. :)

Something I can't recall other people mentioned in this thread, so I'll  
mention myself: the word "Apache" before a project name carries some  
weight: people expect Apache projects to have high quality and the  
Foundation gets projects donated to it because of that (but not only that,  
of course). I think the policies target community participation, but  
quality as well.
