I haven't found any guidelines for creating new builds used by the
maintainer, but as far as my experience tells, it was always reliably
updated. Each time there was an announcement on the Tor blog, also
check.torproject.org reported an update. As far as I learned from trac,
Tor Button code fetches that page, locally phrases it and decides to
open the "up to date" or "there is a security update" page afterwards.
