Really don’t mean to be a grump, here. The last thing I want to do is make an enemy. I write WordPress plugins and have a couple of themes in the works. But I’d like to offer that if updates are critical, then immediate versioning is definitely necessary. If they are comparatively inconsequential and only improvements to otherwise working code, bundling them and pushing once per 3-4 weeks should be sufficient. Updates carrying more enhancements can be better appreciated by users, as they see a larger change between versions. But that is not the reason I am writing.
Due to server configs and other reasons, one of which is often security, not everyone updates their WordPress installs, plugins and themes by clicking the button, sitting back and watching. Updates are done manually and the file dates are all eyeballed to delete any that are not replaced by new versions. Users don’t know which file updates may be for tightening security, so widowed files are manually deleted to keep things clean. Some have more than one WP install to maintain.
An update to Responsive every day for the past 3 days, 10 in 5 weeks, is out of the norm. If the aim is to reach the top of the list on the Themes page, it worked. I fully get that responsive web design is a new area and that there are going to be a lot of revisions at the beginning as the best method is hammered out to try to cover as many device parameters as possible; especially when they keep changing. It’s a new layer on an already complex situation; a lot of it reversing what has been the accepted standard for good coding practice in web design. I commend you for writing and sharing a responsive WP theme. Not an easy task and I know that you want to do the best job possible; just try to chill a little?
