Subject Re: Release cadence

In general, I like the idea of aiming for consistent release cycles. 
However, every month is just too much, at least for me. There is a 
considerable overhead associated with each release for end-to-end 
performance tests, tests on different environments, code freeze for new 
features, etc. Hence, a too short release cycle would not be "agile" but 
would actually slow us down. From my perspective, a realistic release 
cadence would be 2-3 months, maybe a bit more for major releases.
