So, I took my name back out of the Board hat :). Sorry if that disappoints anyone. I talked to a few people about it, some who thought it was a good idea and some who thought it wasn't the best way to move forward; so now at least one other person up for election has put reviewing the release process in their platform (and there are awesome non-RH people up for election!), I decided to let my deep laziness act as the casting vote: being on the Board sounds like hard work and involves phone meetings, of which I am decidedly not a fan. So I'm chickening out and will vote for someone who'll doubtless do a better job than I would :)
Once the election's sorted, I'll talk to a few people and try and come up with a plan to look at reviewing the release process. More details here when I have 'em.
