I grew up with Release Early, Release Often  mantra, first as way to take part of the FLOSS community, but also to try to gather feedback to grow my skills. The latter is mostly unsuccessful, I used to mostly receive indirect feedback e.g. other projects picking up the same ideas, and more recently direct feedback in the form of private or public e-mails, conversations on IRC, mailing lists or forums (: e.g. https://lobste.rs/ :)
There is many ways to release a project, from sharing a roadmap, to a binary that is ready to use, or a mere toot.
How do you balance a) reaching users, contributors, and receive feedback, and b) avoiding too much communication that may be dubbed pollution? And according to you, and your experience, what is the good or perfect balance of Release Early, Release Often?
