You run into complacency dangers if you end up in a "release very often" 
mode, take phpmyadmin as one example, most admins I know gave up 
updating it, because there were updates every week, sometimes  every few 
days, Marc has accepted this is a serious problem and unless a critical 
security bug is found, , normal bug fixes releases will be only once per 
month if need be, take dovecot, not so bad now days but in years gone 
by, it too released weekly or bi-weekly and a lot of people got pissed 
and stopped updating it too.

Projects that "release often" are seen by most admins I talk to (from 
around the world too, not just locally) as unstable and to be avoided, 
not something we want to see here with nginx already take a good share 
inm recent times, and only getting more of it.
