I just started using autopatcher and after my initial run I love the software. I was just wondering roughly how long it usually takes between patch tuesday and your next updated release? Any info would be great.

just a few days, but that depends a lot of how many updates was released. this last time, we had 7 updates and each releaser has his own method. mine is faster, i take the download links for all of the updates and add all at once. then, i do the modules and the script is released (in the same day). but that speed comes with an price: sometimes, some of the modules do not work also expected and have to be fixed "on the fly". just also an sample, at this time, i've discovered the issue by myself a few hours later, but the other team members choose an proper way: they first fully test the script, in several systems. this way is a lot safer than mine, but it also takes more time to be completed. also, the patch Tuesday us to be patch Wednesday, according to the time zone where the releaser is. to James, is more usual he have patch Wednesdays, because he lives in UK and the updates are released in US time zone. i would guess that the scripts are updated 3-4 days after ms, but also i said, it can take more or less time, according to the maintainer free time
