Does anybody else feel we should create a release manager role? It would
take some of the burden off Matt and Sascha is very methodical about
testing releases. I'm not suggesting anything too formal, just "you need
to consult with the RM for nontrivial changes to the release branch".
Matt would still decide when to create the branch of course.

Maybe we should give that a try for the next release?
