I confess I enjoyed Mike's original mail :-), and thought it was a
good point...

But on further reflection, Justin has a point too. A release
inevitably involves more than just the RM. People drop what they're
doing and go run tests, so they can sign the tarball. For the sake of
the project, they reorganize their priorities.

We want that sort of environment, but it implies that we shouldn't use
"Hey, nobody's volunteering *your* time, so why are you worried?" as
an counterargument in most situations. The more we talk about group
priorities, the more we need to think of "the group's" time.
