You forgot the ponies!

The people behind the current system and process has invested way too 
much energy and prestige in the current system to ever accept that the 
result is pretty lousy as a site, and complete rubbish as technology. 
It's about sunk costs, not cost- and time-effective solutions.

For reference, here's my effbot.org release procedure:

1) upload the distribution files one by one, as soon as they're 
available.  all links and stuff will appear automatically

2) update the associated description text through the web, when 
necessary, as an HTML fragment.  click "save" to publish.

3) mail out an announcement when everything looks good.

Maybe I should offer Anthony to do the releases via effbot.org instead?
