Ok, so let me add then that I'm worried about the additional work-load.

I'm particularly worried about the coordination of vacation across the
three people that work on a release. It might well not be possible to
make any release for a period of two months, which, in a six-months
release cycle with two alphas and a beta, might mean that we (the
release people) would need to adjust our vacation plans with the release
schedule, or else step down (unless you would release the "normal"
feature releases as source-only releases).

FWIW, it might well be that I can't be available for the 3.3 final
release (I haven't finalized my vacation schedule yet for August).
