I don't care much, but I think monthly release cycle is quite good for
pushing fixes to users. Once we fix a bug, most users do not upgrade to
git, they rather wait for released version and this way we ensure they
get fix within a month.

I'd like to see it released on the schedule as I thing following two
issues are quite annoying:

* https://github.com/phpmyadmin/phpmyadmin/issues/12279 - makes it
impossible to use phpMyAdmin in case there is mismatch between MySQL
libraries used at runtime compared to the ones used for compilation.
This mostly affects users using MariaDB on older distributions.

* https://github.com/phpmyadmin/phpmyadmin/issues/12249 - affects
anybody running phpMyAdmin on Windows in top level directory.
