Biweekly or monthly would be better at least IMHO. If it's more often
I'll just start ignoring the messages.

Too short. Include the details right there in the message instead of
putting them behind a URL. One less click for lazy people like me...

Please include checksums or signatures of the release packages. That
way we'll have easier time tracking things if the release artifacts
change for one reason or another.

Also, as a general after-the-fact audit, it would be great if the tool
could do some basic release checks and include the results in the
report. For example verify that all the checksums and signatures
included in the dist directory are correct. It would be even cooler if
there was some way (perhaps with explicit release metadata) that would
link the reported release artifacts to the related vote threads.
