Sounds good.

I'd love to have that included if possible and I would commit to testing 
and voting on it if we are in a position to have a release artefact in 
time for 0.30.

Just to be clear, I wasn't suggesting a general process for the future, 
just a way of getting through 0.30. As far as the annoyance of things 
being ready at different times, that will be no worse for 0.30 than it 
was for 0.28 or previous releases.

I think fully independent releases would likely require at least 
distinct release branches and at least the possibility of a different 
release manager. I think that would be a good discussion to have, but I 
think it can be kept separate from what we do with 0.30, which is upon 
us already more or less.

(One of the things I think has been very good about the release process 
since Justin took over is that it is regular, pretty transparent and 
involves most of the community in some way or other. My biggest concern 
in whatever we transition to is avoiding release cycles becoming ad-hoc, 
driven solely by the lead developer(s) with little visibility into the 
planning or schedule for anyone else.)
