Yes, that would be the best. But after the release of Venus, we have had quite 
a long time, without this happening. Finn-Arne has done the job himself.

No, we do not. But if these people start this work, they can document how they 
got up and running, and spread this to the rest of the project.

That is some of the idea....

I totally agree. :) 

If people have done the same thing for a long time, they tend to be 
demotivated... I therfor think that a "release-team" like this should swap 
out one member every now and then. (How long period of time we are talking 
about here I do not know. (3 months, 6 months, 12 months, ???)) So people can 
step away for a period, if they feel for it. 

This is actually some of the essence that Knut, and Kurt talked about, trying 
to sheeld our developer, spred the load, giving them time to step away from 
the work, before they get really feedup.


We can predict everything, except the future.
