Jim, I am really glad you wrote this comment. I was going to write a similar 
E-mail, but thought it would be out of line for me, since I am not involved 
in the Zope 2 development. 

If someone would have done that with Zope 3, I would have been pretty annoyed. 
Thus for Zope 3, if someone creates a release branch without discussing it 
with me first, then that person automatically becomes the release manager for 
that release.
