Wow that is a much different time frame than I would expect or think necessary.

Where does this rule of thumb come from?

It has quite a few implications that I don't think are pleasant.  I would be quite dissatisfied if my pull requests took 2-3 weeks to get merged.

Is that just your feeling or does that come from empirical data or a larger vote?

If you need the code *right now*, then keep developing off line until the whole package is ready. You'd be surprised at the feedback even "trivial" things can elicit.
