And this is exactly what I don't want.

You have already signed up to manage another aspect of the release
process (most notably compiling a list of outlets and notifying them of
James' existence).  How will you taking on this responsibility affect
that one?  It will delay it of course.  And as I think the former is
much more important than the latter (as you mention above, we're not a
substantial drain on resources), I think this is a bad call.

The legalese argument simply doesn't apply (there is exactly one project
that currently follows these guidelines, and notification didn't come
from the ASF but rather from a concerned contributor).

So, while I may be in danger of beating a dead horse, I veto this with a
-1.
