Indeed. Releases aren't for us, we'll be using the development code
regardless of releases I expect. Releases are for users. If we don't
support/maintain the releases, what is to be gained from doing them?

release quickly to get the release ball rolling for good reasons -
what do you want to achieve by conducting releases?
