So I think Augustin should be the one in charge, and if anyone wants to help him (including Adrien), I would assume that this is certainly appreciated. I had sent a mail applying for this at about the same time, but it didn't get through as my ML subscription was not configured properly. I'm worried that waddlesplash is not a member of the haiku project with commit access, and it feels a bit strange to me that someone external to the project can be RC. But if everyone is ok with that, let's go for it, ...

Given your relatively new status in the community, Relatively new -- well, I've been here for just over a year now, so relative to what? To Haiku's founding? I don't see a problem with your age. However, the fact that you don't have commit access makes it very difficult to be a release coordinator. How would you merge patches to the alpha branch? How would you tag the release? ...

The only age based consideration is that if the need should arrive to sign a legal document for some reason (which I am struggling to imagine how that would come up) you would need a parent or guardian to sign, or someone over 18 would have to take over that responsibility. ...

One thing that has and still bothers me, is that everyone who is volunteering to help out with the release has not reviewed/summarized/analyzed the previous mailing list threads regarding doing our next release. IMO, it is imperative to do this. There were reasons why a release was not done earlier. If those reasons are still valid, then I do not see a point in doing a release. ...

Hi everyone, To make things clear, I am willing to be the release coordinator for alpha5. The short timeline set up by Kallisti5 and my vacations during last week made this difficult, but now that I'm back from vacations, I can handle this fine. This morning I filtered the trac ticket and moved away things that shouldn't delay alpha5 from the milestone. This doesn't mean these issues won't be fixed for alpha5, if someone does the work, it can be ...
