I see no reason that we couldn't have stints of release managers, or even
doing a round robin. That will only help to clarify the process for all

Ideally, a release is a mechanical process, with very little "human
experience" built in. The more mechanical it is, then the less room for
error, and releases should be about repeatability. So if we aren't relying
on human experience, then there is no purpose served by having somebody
"hold the position" for any extended period of time.

+1 to Paul. And +1 to the next volunteer.
