Probably we can start simple for the calculations: if we consider that there are "recent" and "older" branches, that the last two ones (i.e. one LTS and one non-LTS) are "recent", and others are "older". Just double all delays for older ones, and maybe update them at most once every two weeks (don't do complicated calculations, do it only on sundays whose day-of-year is even). > I'll also take your other suggestions into account as well but I think these > might be a good starting point. > > I may be a little slow on this but I'll put something together that can > hopefully make the bot more useful. No problem. I do really value these announces (even if I totally understand how they can be boring). Regularly when I see them, I can't help but have a quick check and think "ah shit, we're late", and that was exactly the point. I'm also thinking right now that it could probably be more productive to send them in the middle of the week (wednesday?) than on sundays: they will be seen instantly instead of appearing in the middle of the backlog noise of the past week-end. I think in the mean time you can already kill 1.9 from the list of announces. Thanks, Willy
