here's my vote for a release every 4 or 6 months, as necessary. that
would give 2 or 3 releases a year.

doesn't GNOME (& maybe other projects) release on a dependable 6 month
schedule, matched by some distributions' (Fedora, Ubuntu?) release
cadence? maybe you could synch up with that. I don't know how much
effort it is to spin up a release...if you're only releasing once a
year & you miss a distro's release window then it's that much longer
til people actually get to use it.

it seems like I'm seeing more contributions than usual. even if
they're just documentation or translation patches, you want to get
these to users quicker. it honors the submitters time/effort,
packagers, users, bug reporters, etc. I'm a big fan of release early,
release often. :)
