I know, and I'm not questioning the validity of the desire.

It's a question of balance of opinion.  Some want to keep working
hard,  We have a widely varied level of effort on the project.  We
have voting that keeps committers on equal voting and we have
meritocracy that empowers people who are doing the work.

As I've mentioned many times over the past years, since you unique
access rights and because our release process is not published, it
means that you have a third factor in the decision making process.  If
you have time to explain what permissions Stefano needs and how to
make the release, I would appreciate it.

To everyone who wants to take a breath, I would say it feels rapidly
moving because you are not working on it.  Yes we do not want a
release that the community does not recognize, but I think there's a
balance and I'm pushing to get us moving towards many releases as I
think it will help in a number of ways.
