It's a good point because when we released IT2005 and then released a
number of bugfix releases for it, we showed that every release would be
followed by fixes. And when we released IT2006 no bugfix releases were
made for quite some time.

As for internal perception, this is a sensitive topic.  What I can say
for sure is that "more finished" and Sardine/Herring are not releated at
all. As far as I understand (most likely Carlos would be a better person
to comment on this):
  * Sardine is the latest and greatest
  * Herring is what is stabilized toward _next_ stable release

I do not see how it relates with bugfixe releases, so Carlos is the best
person to describe the whole cycle.

Pity. :-/
