I'm wondering if we should not refresh them less often. Some of those
will trigger some discussion before approval, and having them constantly
wiped out by new patchsets that add one or two extra bumps is, IMHO,

How about we generate those once per week, before Monday starts ? Then
we can process them during the week and end up discussing the same
thing, rather than a moving target.

(We have other things that are refreshed regularly and it's always a
race to gather enough approvals before they are regenerated -- I fail to
see the benefit of daily refresh vs. weekly refresh here)
