Thanks :-).  It was nice to have the backing of the bug fixing squad and
your generous contributions in the release material write-up.  Thanks to
Julien Lepiller for their help and availability w.r.t. the translations.

I wouldn't mind to do it again; twice in a row seems like it may be a
bit fresh in my mind and enable me to do more refinements to the build
system.  I'd also be happy to mentor someone else to try their hand at
it.  I feel like rotation improves our processes, especially w.r.t. to
its documentation.

Yes, thank you Simon and Leo for the help with the release!  I felt less
lonely :-).  I've learned that producing a release can easily take 2-3
weeks even in good conditions (e.g., not many blockers to fix).  I'd
suggest anyone (myself included :-)) trying to meet the schedule to
seriously start trying to put out RCs a month before the planned release

Perhaps we can aim for the next release mid-September (core-updates).
I'm not too sure of the status of core-updates right now, but last time
I worked on it was in a rather good state.
