I would mildly suggest not committing to a regular release schedule until we are confident enough in the software that we can remove the scare warning in `README.md`.

Until we remove this line, I consider our project in beta, and a regular release schedule would not really be something expected of beta software.
Maybe as a possible idealized goal, but not *yet* a strict "release will get delayed, we must panic and render overtime".
(Can I suppose your wording of "aim" is intended to convey this meaning?
In which case no objections for this par.)

Also 4,320 blocks between releases seems a bit fast.
Is not 26,280 blocks already considered fast in FOSS land?
