We have started to recognize people as having release-upload rights, even if
they aren't formal maintainers (this is really fairly recent and so far has been
handled on a case-by-case basis).  Siddhesh, if this applies to you in your
current role, please get in touch at maintain...@gnu.org (ideally CC'ing one or
more maintainers who can confirm).

"Upload rights" isn't much of a title, though, so I would be interested to hear
more about what a release manager does (although Mark gives some hints and I
think I can make a reasonable guess from the name). It's something that could be
formalized / officially recognized if it's generalizable to other packages.
