For silver disks the rule is to updated against resources on the
network as soon as the machine hits the internet. This is independend
of which revision of potato is on the cd, there are most probably always
updates out there, mostly security.
Releasing another revision just ensures the so called ``stable''
distribution on the ftp server is more stable and has less security
