Walter (wxl) has objected to my being re-instated as a release manager for
lubuntu. This will not reduce my testing work. It does, however, now forbid
my going through 3rd parties to give a go / no-go to the release team.
Walter and Julien have been told that one of them will have to mark each
milestone as ready for release.
