1 Isn't it time we did a release?
2 [PROPOSAL] Prepare release foo-x.y.z managed by Anne
3 Focus on fixing code base
4 Anne tags then prepares foo-x.y.z which is the release candidate and
makes it available for proving
5 [VOTE] Promote foo-x.y.z to alpha
6 [VOTE] Promote foo-x.y.z to beta
7 [VOTE] Promote foo-x.y.z to fc

if foo-x.y proves to be substandard then start again with foo-x.y.(z+1)
