: I really don't think this is a good idea.  What gets released and how it gets
: released should not be up to the RM.  We as a community have agreed to support
: the artifacts we produce.  One individual should not then get to undermine
: that b/c they don't have a particular use for some particular artifact or
: release step.

This feels like a disagreement of semantics...

the community helps shape the release guidelines via the wiki, but 
strictly speaking yonik is correct: it's not formal policy (the PMC didn't 
vote on it).  The RM can follow those guidelines as tightly/loosely as 
they choose to make an RC but they have to put it to a vote of the PMC 
before it is truely a release -- If the PMC feels community concencus was 
not followed closely enough by the RM, the release won't get the votes it
