I just installed the 4.0 patched binary, and noticed that it is still at 5/24 (i.e. pre Beta, although I'm guessing that's a minor distinction).  3.6 was updated yesterday.  Since I'm not too familiar with this process yet, what kind of update schedule should I expect for these binaries?

Yes. Simon's policy is just to use the current x.y SVN branch (say R-4.0-branch) which goes through the alpha-beta-RC-(release)-Patched cycle. 

I.e. R-4.0-branch.pkg will _be_ the prerelease at the relevant stage of the development cycle.

(Nerdy details: There is only x.y.0 alpha, otherwise we go directly from, say, "4.0.0 Patched" to "4.0.1 beta"; or, differently put, R-patched _is_ the alpha for the next version. Also, the unqualified x.y.z name is only there while the relase tarball is being created, which is about 5 minutes on release day so never makes it to the nightly builds.)
