Does it? If we want to change the release process isn't it better to have as few changes as possible. We could have made a dry-release (i.e. without changes) just after the 2.060 release just to test the new process.

I think it would be better to figure out how we want the release process to look like as soon as possible and not wait until we have enough changes for a proper release.

The first thing we should have done after the 2.060 release was to figure out a new release process. Then when we're actual want to make a real release we already have the new process figured out and it won't be a problem.

A release with the new process should be made as soon as possible.
