I would go for either 3 or 4 a year. For fedora rawhide, it makes little
difference, they're released, I build and submit. Job done. For f10 and
f9 though, these are typically 1 and 2 releases behind rawhide (f10 is
on 2.0.1 and f9 is on 1.9.1). Unless there is a massive change in API or
a runtime library, then having 3 or 4 releases will have little impact
on them.

What I will say though is that when you release them, you have something
on the preview website which says "changed on <date>" so that needless
building is avoided.
