TBH, I'm not too keen on the idea of releasing just because we're
suddenly hitting a specific date - if there's no changes worth
releasing... Yeah, I'd like to see it happen more often than every 6-8
months, but every 2-3 months is just going to create unnecessary work
fort the admins out there. Going down this route, I think the bare
minimum way of playing nice would be to very clearly mark releases as
either security, feature or just that time of the month releases.
