Yes, that's been my experience over the years.  Once a signature writer has
finished with a batch they put them through QA testing and then send them
out.  So it depends mostly on the work schedule of the writers, which used
to be much more random when they were all volunteers.

My impression of the last longer break was that it had to do with the
holidays, but you are correct that it didn't start flowing until somebody
asked and we didn't get an explanation.
