What is a release?

I think I have figured out part of the disconnect on some of the recent 

There are two types of releases.  I'll call them "big" and "little".  Does 
anybody have suggestions for better terms?

A little release is no big deal.  Every two weeks would be fine.  It's just a 
useful handle on the state of our repository.

When I hear the word "release", my immediate reaction is to think of a big 
release.  That's something to be well tested, preferably by users rather than 
just insiders, and something that we will support for a while.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
