I don't think there's anything wrong with our release process. No-one is cherry-picking huge numbers of commits and we defined 'enough fixes' at our last devteam meeting as 'when bugs A, B, C ... X, Y & Z were fixed'. They're not all fixed yet, hence no release. FWIW there are 43 other commits on master ready to go, amassed over the last year.

Hang in there, it's almost out

I think that puts you in a fairly small group of players.

FWIW I think the release process is fine, but it is definitely not push-button - and never will be. To make a half decent release you need to check or update various things manually (changelog, thanks, FAQs) and do invisible but important things like git tagging etc. We got it down to this, which is ok, but definitely something I'd rather not do twice. 3.5.1 will be the last release "before the restructure" - ah good, I'd been wondering what to call it ...

I said master - I meant 3.5-release. Oops.
