Eric Niebler who has been kindly engaging you is one of the release
managers. It seems that he has patiently provided his point-of-view. The
release process has been greatly improved over the past year thanks to
the hard work and dedication of the current managers. Is there room for
improvement? Certainly, but let me suggest that you also familiarize
yourself with how the process works and observe a release cycle. It will
only be 3-month before the craziness starts again.
You can find answers to some of your questions here:
Looking at the dev mail list history will also give you a good idea of
what occurs during a release and the efforts by the release team.
