Subject Re: Board report

Thanks. Now that we've said to the board that we're discussing what it
takes to make a release, perhaps we'd better do it :-)

Is anyone prepared to take on the job of release manager?

Note, code quality is of no consequence in relation to releasing in the
incubator. What's needed is to show that licensing/etc is all handled
correctly. If folks don't want to make a release public, it can be
produced, vetted by the incubator PMC, and then dropped rather than
published. Having said that, I consider it to be worth while to release
an alpha version of the code even if it isn't complete, as it may help
draw in additional developers to help fill in the missing features.

Thoughts?
