This is right.  I also used the word GR, but I do not want it.  All I
want is that the people that made that proposal (decision?) after the
Vancouver meeting accept that although they have a big saying here,
because they do much of the work involved, they're not the only ones.  

And there are some suggestions around that would allow to combine both
goals: Dropping the workload of the release-team, ftpmaster team,
etc. considerably, while still trying to release "etch + ports
changes".  I hope the people from the Vancouver group will consider
these proposals.  May no GR, and even no GR draft, be needed for this.
