In my view, this is up to the PPMC for Celtixfire.

Basically, doing a release is the central responsibility of the PPMC, 
and they cannot delegate the decision to someone outside of itself. Nor 
can they delegate the work of signing the release (that to my mind 
wouldn't make sense, as the PPMC is vouching for its integrity).

However, if those on the PPMC wanted some help with the actual process 
of preparing the release - testing, building, etc, that is up to those 
PPMC members, and maybe there is some way you can help there.

Does that make sense?
