Let engage a quick discussion at the Guix Days about that...

...and that.

Because now Guix is becoming a piece of software \o/ and so more bugs
are opened than closed (no stats! :-)) then new features are touching
very different topics, we could imagine that 2-3 people take in charge
the release responsibilities because it would ease triage between what
is blocking and what is not.
Well, as usual, the difficult part is to bootstrap from scratch. ;-)
And the skills that are required are a bit abstract -- at least to me
-- so how to reach volunteers? :-)

Well, let talk at the Guix Days what could be done. :-)
