Not in my suggestion - people who review releases work directly on the
svn document, enter their comments there and that counts as a +1
towards the release.

A big part of this is teaching people that reviewing a release is not
just about dropping a +1 in email - we want them, especially for early
incubating releases, to indicate what they reviewed and what they
didn't. Working on this in svn (as the board does for its meetings) is
efficient, leads to a concise manifest that's easy to review and
overall a much clearer process, IMO, than complaints in long email
threads.
