I think you have some strange idea of what the release process
involves. The release is easy. A small project like tmux does not need
more people with some sort of special release engineer hat.
What we could use is a more testing, formal or informal, in the time
between releases. If we come up to release time and there are 100 open
issues on GitHub, we are not going to do the release until they are
looked at. Or if someone was maintaining a good test suite, we would
wait until they were happy.
But neither of these is the case.
If those 100 issues were all opened by one person, we might want to
bring them into the project. But nobody is doing that.
I don't use tmux releases and I don't really want to spend my time
fussing about them, but if you open good bug reports I will look at
them, and if they are fixed before making it into a release... well,
then releases are better.
I don't think we need to discuss this any further.
