Well, maybe just having a couple release team members focused on that
would be enough. I like the idea of having more clear roles for each
r-t- member btw. Anyway, I only suggested a separate group because: a)
it's a delegable task b) the r-t can slack a bit more :-P

It's more important to have agreement on the more fundamental idea
that r-t wouldn't be building all apps for a release in the long term
though. Because that's what seems to be getting heavier and heavier on
each release. The r-t will end up taking days to build all GNOME
modules if we keep adding 1 or 2 modules every cycle... It's basically
unmanageable in the long term.
