Let me point you to the discussion.

The discussion is on this list. Can't find it? It is called release script.

It is my attempt to hammer out with everyone involved what releasing really 
means. To get people to talk about what changes are needed to make live easier 
for kde, kde-packagers, distro-packages and really anyone.

So whe can automate it and everyone is happy.

You got each and every mail of the discussion since you are subscribed. Ok. A 
few are kde-buildsystem only.

Since Andreas took my hint and provided some helpful insights it is now quite 
a big thread.  About 30 emails on this list. Hard to miss.

So you chose to not read the discussion? Or failed to understand? Or already 
forgot? Is this list so high volume you have to skip some?

So i am still wondering what this mailing list brings to the table. Noone 
seems to read it. If they do they do not care enough to contribute until 
called out.

And the people on this list are the ones that should care.

Which leaves me wondering why i care.
