I guess I'm not understanding. We keep a set of production packages
frozen for 3 months at a time. While that production set is out, we are
updating EDGE almost weekly / biweekly, testing and fixing issues as
they occur. When it is time to roll another PRODUCTION set, we freeze
the EDGE set for about 2 weeks, work out any last kinks, then "promote"
it to PRODUCTION, and don't touch it for 3 months again.

Or am I misunderstanding here?
