[theme-reviewers] Frequent Updates

This was briefly discussed on the mailing list last month.  For reference:

Otto made it pretty clear that frequent and meaningless updates are not
allowed, so I don't think that should be a problem.  This is something
that's also done with plugins.

Basically, the idea though is to just add updates when there's something of
significance like a new feature or a bug fix.  Don't send updates to us
when you're changing code formatting or updating your documentation.

If someone is sending in weekly bug fixes, then I don't think we're doing a
very good job with the initial reviews.  If you're sending in weekly
enhancements, what more could you possibly be adding?

I do agree with Trent that it is a healthy dev strategy for some
people/companies to have, but we also have to balance that with the facts
of the situation.  The situation is that we do human-powered theme reviews
and still lack the manpower to handle them all.  If we're constantly having
to go through the priority update queue, it leaves little time for reviews
on new themes.  I don't like the situation, but this is where we're at.  I
might be starting to get into another discussion, so I'll just stop there.
