First of all thanks a lot for stepping up and take care of automating
RMing, it is something that we really need! I also like the idea of getting
to a point in which doing a release will be as simple as running a script
(that everybody in the PMC can do without the fear of doing a worldwide
I have a question for you about how do we plan to collect/list the 'known
issues' in trunk, in order to address them properly in the next iterations
of the 2.5.0 process to become a stable release.
For example, there is this thread that I'd really think is important:
I also believe that other people have pointers to things that would need
some love in trunk, but of course nobody has the overall complete picture

that would probably require a big workforce to be completed (in parallel to
keeping 2.4.x up to date with bug fixes etc..). Do we have an idea how to
prioritize the work (or simply decide the 'must' vs 'nice to have')?
