It is fine with me if someone else manages a 1.35.1 release, although it
isn't clear to me who that someone would be. Dave Abrahams is
interested, but I doubt he has the time available.

I'm personally concentrating on smoothing out the regular quarterly
release process so that releases happen as scheduled and with more
quality assurance than is currently the case. That leaves me no time to
manage point releases.

Yes. branches/release will be for 1.36.0. I haven't given any thought to
what the other should be named.

Each individual library's maintainer. That's the only approach I know of
that scales, and avoids the release managers becoming bottlenecks.

Good questions, thanks!
