Anyone interested in the job of a Liferea release manager? I think it would help to have someone enforcing a tighter release schedule, who also could priorize and enforce bug reports. Now and then (especially in the last time) releases do not come in the 2-4 weeks period and I believe a dedicated release manager could improve this.
Here is what this unpaid job is about:
- Deciding on release dates
- Creating releases (SVN checkout, creation of distribution tarball, creation SF new release)
- Propagating release (SF news feed, mailing list, webpage)
- Closing solved bug reports
I know this is quite a lot of work, as I'm doing this for some years now. It would be nice to have someone to take care of it, so that I could spend more time on the code and the bugs.
If you are interested (no matter what expierences) post a comment or write a mail to the mailing list. All contributions are welcome!
