- What problem are we trying to solve?
- Release management is something that requires a good understanding of
all parts of the code and the authority to make calls under pressure if
issues come up during the release itself
- The less change we can have to the release process the better from an
operational perspective
- Don't really want an engineer to have to learn all this stuff on the
job as well as have other things to take care of (regular development
- The idea of kiko/flacoste delegating somebody to be RM sounds fine,
but it should be a 6-12 month stint, with a 1-3 Release overlap with the
next person to take over the position.
- Any change of timezones of the releases would need to be approved with
the SAs

Thanks, Tom
