Or check here, what I would call the first official use of the term :)

If I remember correctly 1.1.2 was the first release where tackat was involved,
and because of this the need of a release dude arised. I was kind of managing 
the releases before that, but mhk was in fact the first one to give releases 
a time frame - and in fact I was still doing the tar ball, but only those 
extracting the tars saw the kulow/students ;-)

Someone needs to write a paper, so we get these young lads educated.

Greetings, Stephan
