I believe the upload of a new release to the repo prior to the

But I agree it would be nice to have a more "bit flip" approach to
new releases in the repo and not have the packages appear as updates
prior to the announcement and final release and update notes.
By my observations sometimes there are packages available on the
download servers via the "last stable" folders such as
https://download.ceph.com/debian-quincy/ quite some time before the
announcement of a release is out.
I know it's hard to time this right with mirrors requiring some time
to sync files, but would be nice to not see the packages or have
people install them before there are the release notes and potential
pointers to changes out.
Todays 16.2.11 release shows the exact issue I described above ....
1) 16.2.11 packages are already available via e.g.
2) release notes not yet merged:

I really appreciate the work (implementation and also testing) that goes

the news is out":
1) packages are available on e.g. download.ceph.com
2) There are NO release notes on at
3) And there is no announcement on the ML yet
It would be awesome if you could consider bit-flip releases with
packages only available right with the communication / release notes.
