Re: Feedback on 'Opportunity for participation in Gnome releases'

Sounds very sensible.

This would also be a good way to get new release-team members. If a good
candidate pops up, I'd like to be replaced sometime. I'm trying to give up
responsibilities and, with Elijah running things so wonderfully smoothly,
it seems like something that doesn't need me any more.
