So, I'm writing up notes for my annual evaluation and it occurs to me that
in the past year I've supported an almost ridiculous number of product
releases.

Back when I was doing waterfall software development, I might have a
product release once a quarter, with only one really being a major feature
release and the rest being smaller releases that were generally patches/bug
fixes.

Now that I'm doing Agile (and supporting multiple products) it seems like
every time I turn around I have another release deadline.

So my question for you folks today is, how many product releases a year are
you expected to provide documentation for?
