Could be also interesting to be able to deliver quick fix.

For example, 2.4.7 is the latest stable version. 2.4.8 has things 
back-ported from trunk little by little and should be T&R "one day" (in 
feb ?).

Should an important vulnerability be found, then releasing:
    - a    or
    - 2.4.7 SP1    or
    - 2.4.8 and delaying everything already accepted in backport for a 
later 2.4.9    or
    - whatever else
with *only fixes* for this issue, could be interesting.

Doing so would avoid time for T&R and avoid releasing something in a hurry.

Best regards,
