   Alright, it seems like I need to read what the script actually does.
   
   Although I haven't read the script at all, I don't understand how we can automate something
without policies, rules, whatever. I guess the script does the task based on something. It
is expecting something. I think the something is apart of policies ("policy" and "rule" are
different but I used it as "something we should follow").
   
   And I guess the script ease the pain you stated in your motivation below.
   
   > Labels and milestones are not marked correctly. Changes are not cherry-picked to branches.
   It causes a lot of troubles for release managers to do a release.
   
   These are why I though some policy is coded into the script.
   
   Anyways, I hope our comments here made people think about policies.
   
   
   As for ways of doing things, I agree. How things can be done depends on people in the community.
I was suggesting that automating is not the only way. Because I believe steps are based on
some policy, I think people can do some of the things without enforcing with scripts once
we define clear policies.
   
   As for the pain points, my point is that showing what you exactly saw during releases and
explaining how labels, milestones, etc help RM is more effective than just saying missing
things cause problems.
