Yup, we should be able to release on a weekly  basis. I think as soon  
as alpha-3 comes out we'll be ready for another one. The requirement  
is that we have fixed something or improved something and then we can  
release again. The ITs should ensure this at this point with sheer  
amount of testing we have.

Not really, it's more a matter of when the APIs are stable and we  
can't find any more problems. Could be 5, 10, 25. We won't know until  
more people start using it.
