I would also like to stress that the Simultaneous Release is a community
effort. I will do my best to support the community, as well as maintain
and improve the existing tools and processes.
There might be (small) bumps on the road ahead, but I'm sure they can't
stop the release train from reaching the (release) station safe and sound.
