I would like to see us stop pushing non security updates to updates from

Remember the "2 week releases" are only images, they don't relate to the
primary update mechanism of ostree commits (nor for that matter the rpm-md repos, which

Something like 80% of Fedora usage hitting the mirrors was desktop systems, right?
I don't expect that to change personally.
Of course we need to, and will continue to do server-related work in Fedora. It's
defined to be the upstream. What I want as a developer is a place to integration
test things rapidly - more than once a day, and do continuous delivery from our
main upstreams (from systemd, anaconda etc.) - with rollback (what ostree
was designed to do, and we aren't using).
As far as release cadence from that - monthly feels a little slow but I wouldn't
be opposed. In the end though if we containerize more fully, the question
gets both easier and more complex as we'd (I'd assume) use the ability
to have separate cadences for applications vs OS base vs development tools etc.
