Weekly release schedule?

> The project's release cadence will change to weekly ...

That's NOT at all what the announcement says. A weekly release schedule would be extremely bad for critical infrastructure.

What the announcement was saying, is that when security releases need to happen, they'll happen on a Tuesday. With a pre-announcement a week before, so people are pre-warned.

This is because (quoting here) "We don’t see a need to have people ready to sacrifice their weekend every time a new CVE comes out ...".

In the case of extreme urgency though, the Tuesday thing won't be followed. Hopefully that doesn't happen very often, but time will tell.
