Okay, thanks for clearing that up for me!

I agree that it's a lot of work for one person, and dividing the  
responsibility might be a good idea, Felix is a complicated project  
that consists of many components. In theory each component can be  
released independently. My only "worry" is that we create many  
different ways and policies for creating releases. That won't look  
good. So I would want to discuss this with Karl present to make sure  
we all agree on how to do this (of course anybody else is free to  
join in on this discussion). However, I don't want to "stop" anybody  
from contributing, I really appreciate the effort you're making.

Greetings, Marcel
