that's indeed a good question. I personally wait several days or
maybe one or two weeks after I fixed a bug. In the issue that
reported the bug, I state that this bug has been fixed in the
development release (you could also provide a link to the release
node). When no other bugs occur, I'll roll a stable release.

Rest assured that most likely all code has bugs. Even from advanced
developers. Take for example Drupal core: there are lots of bug fixes
even though core code is usually reviewed by many eyes when it's

Three releases in a week is probably not a good idea. However, this
also depends on the severity of the issues fixed. If they are pretty
grave (XSS, Module can't even be installed, etc.) it's of course
necessary to immediately release a new module. If the bug was a minor
one, you probably can wait several days or even weeks.
