After a release is made, bugs and problems are bound to be reported. The period between the release and the start of the next release cycle is the optimal time to perform Stable Release Updates (SRU) for major bugs as long as developers do not forget to fix the issue in the next release as well, once the repository opens. Once the next release cycle has started, primary focus will be on the next release and the severity/importance of the SRU candidates will be more important when it comes to deciding whether an SRU will be performed or not.
