I've gotten into the habit of making the decision right away and
adding or blocking the commit. That said I could also go for a "decide
to release, post a list of commits, and the comiter is responsible for
his/her list" with community input as needed. I'd think that would
allow for greater community awareness on what is/isn't hitting the
maintenance branches instead of relying on a comitter's judgement

That said, I'll do as I'm told. I ride trunk so the decision doesn't
really affect me personally beyond having lots of people yell at me if
some behavior change sneaks into a maintenance branch...
