Just in case anyone gets the wrong impression, I never said that I'll
"just throw tarballs over the fence every week". I said that I tend
to do more frequent releases, but that is a very different statement.

When I did releases I had a release checklist, a testing procedure
(both automated and manual), I did changelogs, I did release plans, I
did bug management and all of the other things that are associated
with a release manager. I did that continuously for about 7 years for
Samba. I have also done it for numerous other projects.

I care deeply about code quality, as I thought you might have worked
out from all the effort I have put into automated testing and
refactoring. I also think that some bugs are just never found without
wide testing, which is why I try to do more frequent releases to
maximise that testing.

Both approaches can work, but please don't mistake frequency for

Cheers, Tridge
