Oh, just a historical note here. release.data has no bearing on the release
team, it's just a set of helpful data structures we created a long time ago
in order to be able to reference the same thing in the Perl code that
generates the various lists of manuals in releases/<...>/installmanual and
releases/<...>/releasenotes. Later its usage spread further, because it was
so convenient. But the release.data files just document the truth, they
don't determine it :)
