I would welcome if we could make the release manager role rotating. So if Tom
would be able to pick this up it would be great if Khem can feed him some of his
experience with the last release. Be it only theoretical with some hints or
practically with helping to review and apply patches towards. Does this sound
good to both of you?
I will do some more testing over the next days/weeks and also trying to help
with some patches if needed.
