The releases are normally Thursday, so that's a week separation.
I'm not sure about the seeding process I'm afraid.
The CDs are created the day before, and quite often respun on
the day if serious problems are found in testing. The packages
updates aren't batched in any way though.
I can put you in touch with someone from the release team if
my guesses aren't good enough for you (or one may be subscribed,
I'm not sure).
is our full schedule if you are interested. There are links
to ical files on that page. Do you have something similar?
Should we set up a google calendar, or similar, that collates
all of the calendars?
