I know, but many times it's either:

  1) I need to finish some features I started to get them in
release-ready status, even for devel releases that are supposed to be

  2) Nothing has been done on the module since last devel release.  This
sounds bad, but happens with many modules that are mostly in maintenance
mode.  Pango is a great example of this.  There are months that Pango
hacking takes a large part of my time, and there are other months when
other projects are (like right now).  Given that some changes need to be
done early in the release cycle, I can push myself to get something done
for each devel release.

Ok, I'll try to set up evo to send notifications and I'll see how far
that goes.  But then where's the ice cream in that?
