About three majors, and nine maintenances.

(Is maintenances a word? Is it Friday yet?)

Subject: How many product releases do you support in a given year?

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?
