It's not that no one likes the proposal.  It's more of the "herding
cats" phenomenon.  There's no consensus on how the release process
should work, it's hard to make a thousand scattered volunteers listen
anyway, and no one other than the current release manager is willing to
step up and actually try to manage the release...
