The fact that I'm supposed to be one of the people advising me is a bit
odd. This makes me feel that perhaps the fwt should look for someone to
replace me. At least I'll withhold from voting in order to not have
conflicting roles.

I would say that your job as release manager doesn't really start
until after the Framework Team's job ends (e.g. after they give you
recommendations on products).  The fact that you are one of the people
involved in creating consensus on those recommendations isn't a
tremendous conflict in my mind.  However, if you are more comfortable
not participating, or participating only in case of a tie, that would
not be unreasonable.

I think you have a good point. I *certainly* hope that Wiggy will be an active participant in the discussion that will go on around the bundles. Perhaps a good solution is that he always casts the last formal vote, in case of a tie?

Anyway - I think Alec is right that this is unlikely to be problem. The whole point is to discuss and reach consensus, and bring our perspectives to bear on the various bundles, not to get lost in technicalities.
