That very much depends.  Doing the releases (every 2 weeks) may take an
hour or so (or much less if you're using some automation).  The other
tasks may easily take more time, especially until the first GA release.
 Note, though, that there is a second RM, so the work can be distributed.

As release manager, there is no need to *program* in C, but you should
have at least a working understanding of C to be able to roughly assess
PRs and commits, and to be able to resolve merge conflicts, if these occur.
