    While I agree entirely that motu-release should have a larger role
than handling freeze exceptions, I'm inclined to agree with Scott that
for hardy, this team is best positioned to handle the necessary
approvals to meet the release goals.

    Discussion should continue about what is expected from a MOTU
Release team, and interested parties should be involved for hardy+1
starting much earlier.  pre-summit would be good, but even pre-DIF
would be acceptable, assuming that interested parties had already been
preparing their agendas.
