I wouldn't call it "burden" but "challenges". EMO (aka. Wayne) is already doing a great job of automating and streamlining as much of this as possible. We shouldn't plan our releases based on the process but optimize our process to allow for more frequent releases.

+1 to the general idea.

Big +1 to the idea of an "always current" aggregation repo that I can go to and fetch updates from. For me as a user it would be really nice to not track all projects individually.

The annual release still makes sense, though. It could become a stable baseline for LTS.
