While noisy, I think the very public development process is a good thing,
and that we will end up with better data overall as a result. I don't see
this as being at all incompatible with having quick, small updates for late
breaking rule changes.

But pretty much no matter what is decided here as a policy for managing
releases, I can deal with it.
