Well, they could resign immediatedly after or with the release.

Unfortunately there are always the wrong people reconsider their involvment
in the project. Remember the last wave of retirement announces?
Whereas the people that actually should retire are just saying nothing, even
when they've been asked.

Been there, done that, too...
I always got several private mails during my last years rants, although I
was entitled in public as an idiot and moron as well, which led me to the
point that's not me being an idiot, but those who call others that way.
Anyway, even Galileo Galilei was entitled to be an idiot when he stated that
not the earth is the middle of the universe...
