Are you sarcastic here?
No, not at all. I would say OpenLDAP has too few releases in a year (only
1-2 currently for most years, unfortunately), so having more frequent
releases for it is probably a good thing. But a piece of software in
general that is releasing constantly? Not a fan of it at all, and haven't
seen it as a good thing as far as softare quality is concerned. There's
plenty of software that releases much less frequently than OpenLDAP as
well, because there isn't a driving need for it to have a new release.
And as Howard noted, there's a balance to strike between stability and
feature development. If we release every 2 weeks, but slapd core dumps 90%
of the time, is that really better? Sure, the project looks more "active",
but I wouldn't see that as a benefit/gain.
