Yes, release votes are one point, another point is that we could probably avoid asking for
votes for more than one RC on general@i.a.o if we had more ASF-experienced eyes looking at
it on the dev list.

Wrt to the other points you mentioned, collaboration seems generally effective (albeit not
always on the list), technical infrastructure is not a big problem, and most things I learn
about ASF culture I learn from discussions on general@i.a.o.

I think that the mentor activity that we could benefit from is the occasional benevolent hint
on how to make things work more smoothly within the ASF.
