"trust" is the wrong word here.
Currently I would not like you to do a release without me being involved
on the sideline simply because we never got around to discussing what is
involved in doing/managing a release. However, I definitely do trust you
in the sense that I know you're aware of that and thus would always
coordinate/check with me beforehand.
If I were to, as they say, step under a bus and someone else would be
forced to take over, you are IMO the best qualified person to do so.
You know the build system well, have actively followed commits and
releases so you know a lot of what's involved even if we never discussed
the details, and as a bonus you're also a translator and are thus very
familiar with that side of it.
I would still love to see you take a more active role when it comes to
actually maintaining the manual (both editing and RM), but the initiative
for that has to come from you. And if you still lack the time/whatever to
do so, that's fine too.
