In my experience you need not wait for ftpmaster approval to issue 
subsequent releases: When approving, they will simply approve the 
subsequent releases as well.

If you don't release updates, you may risk that when ftpmaster finds 
time to inspect your package they find flaws (which you knew about and 
had prepared fixes for but did not in fact formally provide) - and you 
get the package rejected and need to wait for _next_ window that they 
find time to inspect it anew.
