So it might be helpful to have a short "module requirements' page here
like the "Developer Platform API/ABI rules" and "Platform Bindings
API/ABI rules" pages.

For instance, this might say

"Maintainers are expected to make regular releases so that recent
changes can be tested, such as new features, bug-fixes, translations,
and documentation."


"However, maintainers do not need to make a new release if there are no
significant changes in their module."

"Maintainers should add new features at the start of the development
schedule, before the feature freeze. But maintainers are not expected to
add features if none are necessary, or if they will not have time to
complete the features during the current schedule. In this case, the
maintainer should inform the release-team and various sub-teams, that
the new GNOME release should use the existing stable branch."

I think this is what most maintainers understand already.

If you can make that shorter or clearer that would be great. We can add
to this later.
