Agreed on the vote. I didn't like the idea of giving an RM authority 
over the greater community. I much prefer considering the RM as the 
guiding force for a release rather than some authoritative entity. The 
community at large should still be responsible for releases, but an 
elected entity is a good idea to keep the community honest.
