Hi Rob,
If the release you messed up is within the last 3 months, you can just 
override it with a fake older date and make it go out of view (add the 
release again and set the date to 1970-01-01 for instance). I'll work on 
a smarter editing feature soon.

Viewing previous release cycles and such would indeed be cool, but I'd 
probably need some sort of mock-up from you to be able to create it - 
I'm not sure how it should be displayed and what info to include. I'm 
not saying you should open up ye olde MS Paint and draw something, but 
some sort of visual idea would be nice.

With regards,
