Maintainers (bis), please do try to respect the Monday 23:59 UTC
deadline, it's really not fun to chase maintainers for days
release weeks.  If you know you will be late, tell us, either by
at release-team gnome org or simply by pinging us on #release-

I'd rather somebody helped me 1) know which of my modules need
releasing 2) do releases.

We can of course assist in producing tarballs, just ping us.

I'm a bit surprised by 1) but we could certainly automatically
a list of maintainers / modules/ time/commits since last release, if
that could be useful.

I think 1) would be useful because I have a load of modules which I am
not sure if they need to follow the main GNOME release schedule. I had
a nagging fear they should, but then nobody poked me about doing a
release, so I forgot to check up further. As a result, a lot of my
modules haven’t had releases following the schedule. (Sorry if I have
been a total pain because of this.)

Would such a list be useful for the release team, as a way of tracking
who needs nagging? If so, then I hope producing it should not be too
much of a drain on your time — if it is a drain, then you probably
shouldn’t do it.
