"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.
